Center Overview

Since opening in early 2010, The Center for Cancer Care at Sherman Health has been a powerful ally for patients and families touched by cancer throughout the region.

Located on the new Sherman Hospital campus, The Center offers both outpatient and inpatient services, including Diagnostics, Infusion Therapy, and Medical, Radiation and Surgical Oncology in a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility custom-designed for healing.

But more than a place to go for treatment, The Center for Cancer Care at Sherman Health has become a community all its own -- where people can connect and find the support they need to power through.

Patients and loved ones benefit from:

  • More than 15,000 square feet of space
  • Private and shared treatment rooms -- all with their own televisions -- giving you the option of receiving cancer chemotherapy separately or together with other patients
  • A resource library, where every member of the community can come to research and learn about cancer care and prevention
  • A boutique sponsored by the American Cancer Society that provides free wigs and professional styling, breast prosthetic fittings and more
  • A meditation room
  • Dedicated parking and a separate entrance, so you can access the care you need without having to go through the Hospital
