Our Services

Screening and Diagnostics
Detecting cancer in its early, more treatable stages is key. Saint Clare’s Health is equipped with a full suite of state-of-the-art imaging technology to ensure rapid diagnosis and assessment of cancers affecting the breast, head and neck, chest (lung), thyroid, abdomen, pelvis, colorectal, digestive, and urologic, and reproductive organs.
Advanced imaging technology provides physicians with critical information on tumor location, position, staging, and treatment response.

Patient Navigators
When you are faced with a cancer diagnosis, it can be overwhelming and a source of fear and anxiety. Our oncology patient navigators are available to help and support you through the cancer treatment process, whether its acting as a liaison between you and your cancer team, scheduling your appointments, coordinating with your insurance company and care providers, or connecting you to resources at the Center for Cancer Care or in your community. Your patient navigator is your direct point of contact and go-to person for any question or need you may have.

Surgery
If surgery is part of your treatment plan, our modern, spacious surgical suites are equipped with the latest technology and amenities. Where possible, we will perform your operation using minimally invasive techniques, including robotic surgery, which can lead to better outcomes, less time in the hospital, fewer complications, and a faster return to your daily routine.

Radiation Therapy
Using advanced equipment, our radiation oncologists are able to safely and precisely target tumors, while sparing healthy tissue. Our radiation therapy program is led by board-certified radiation oncologist, Dr. Prashant Desai, who has specialty expertise in treating cancers of the breast, lung, head and neck, central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, and genitourinary system.
