Methodist Hospital delivers highly sophisticated cancer treatment. Our primary goal is to view each person as a
whole, in an atmosphere of compassion.
At Methodist Hospital we are committed to treating the whole person, tending not only to the patient’s physical needs but also the emotional, social and spiritual needs.

Methodist Hospital offers the most advanced cancer diagnostics, treatment and personalized care, including:
- Recommended yearly screenings
- Diagnosis - 320-slice CT scanner that can produce 4D images of body organs
- Treatment - all aspects of care, including chemotherapy, surgery, pain management and cancer support groups.

Our 36-bed inpatient oncology unit is dedicated to providing comprehensive care and treatment for adults with cancer and other medical conditions. Our services include chemotherapy, managing symptoms related to the cancer and managing side effects caused by chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
We have worked to build a place where cancer patients can find a comforting environment that encourages them to focus on healing. Most of our rooms are spacious single rooms with beautiful views, cable TV and magazines upon request.
The unit is staffed by a multi-disciplinary treatment team of physicians, oncology nurses, dietitians, social workers, discharge planners and pastoral care representatives. Our staff works together to customize the care to fit each patient’s specific medical needs. Our medical and nursing staff members speak English, Spanish, Chinese and other languages to meet patients’ needs.
