The medical oncology/hematology clinics of Mercyhealth Cancer Centers are located in the Mercyhealth Michael Berry Building, on the main Mercyhealth Hospital and Trauma Center campus in Janesville and at Mercyhealth Hospital-Rockton Avenue in Rockford. Services are also offered at Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center-Walworth in Lake Geneva.
Our care team includes oncologists, a nurse practitioner, registered nurses (83% who are oncology-certified nurses), medical assistants, a social worker, a patient financial counselor, a dietitian, and support personnel, including a receptionist and medical records clerk.
All care team members work together with the common goal of providing quality, compassionate care to the patients who enter through the doors seeking our services. Ongoing communication with the patient’s primary care physician, radiation oncologist, and/or surgical oncologist is maintained to ensure continuity of care.
Individualized chemotherapy treatments are administered to patients in the medical oncology/hematology clinic by specially trained RNs under the direction of the medical oncologist.
Patients receive their treatments in comfortable reclining treatment chairs, each equipped with its own TV with headphones to minimize noise. Chemotherapy treatment plans are individualized based on numerous factors, including cancer type and stage of disease. Leading-edge chemotherapy treatments are available to patients. Supportive treatments for patients are also available in the treatment room, including other intravenous infusions, lab draws, and injections.
Our medical oncology/hematology patients also have the option to participate in clinical trials. Mercyhealth’s medical oncology/hematology clinic is affiliated with the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group of the National Cancer Institute, as well as the Wisconsin Oncology Group. Chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer, lung cancer, and colorectal cancer are just some of the clinical trials available through these affiliations.
