As a leader in cancer care for many years, Saint Agnes has been and continues to be committed to meeting the needs of cancer patients throughout our Central Valley. With a vision of creating a more comprehensive cancer program, Saint Agnes has chosen to align even more closely with cCARE (California Cancer Associates for Research and Excellence), bringing together the best of our respective resources in order to benefit each and every patient.
The goal was simple – to create a better patient experience and provide a greater continuity of care. With this partnership, Saint Agnes' Cancer Center, newly named 'cCARE at Saint Agnes', will undergo a full renovation, expanding from a 32,000 square-foot center to a 65,000 square-foot center, bringing all outpatient cancer services together under one roof, thus allowing patients to get all of their needs met in one convenient location.
The NEW 65,000 square-foot building will be home to cancer care and hematology services that include radiation therapy, a high-complexity medical lab, chemotherapy, imaging and a physician dispensing program for oral oncology drugs. cCARE, which boasts more clinical trials than some academic medical centers, expects the new center to be the largest and most advanced of its kind managed by a private medical practice in California’s Central Valley.
And when a need arises for surgery or inpatient care, cancer patients can continue to rely on the expert physicians and staff at Saint Agnes, as well as our supportive service including genetic counseling, social and nutritional services, an adult sickle cell clinic, a nurse navigator program and lymphedema treatment.
