Cancer Care

The Stewart Cancer Center at Boone Hospital offers a continuum of services, ranging from prevention and detection to diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitative and hospice services.

The Stewart Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons and receives approximately 2,000 patient admissions for primary or secondary diagnosis of cancer each year. There is a dedicated medical oncology unit consisting of 32 beds when hospitalization is required, however, a majority of cancer treatments can be performed on an outpatient basis.

Outpatients can receive chemotherapy, blood transfusions, IV fluids, antibiotics, pain management and other cancer treatments and tests.
