Chemotherapy

St. Joseph Hospital - Eureka

Chemotherapy — the use of medication to kill cancer cells — is an important part of treatment for many types of cancer. The Chemotherapy Center at Providence St. Joseph Hospital Eureka provides chemotherapy in a modern, soothing environment.

We offer the most up-to-date treatments. Our medical oncologists work with other cancer specialists, including surgeons and radiation oncologists, to create a treatment plan that will be most effective for you. Our goal is to fight your cancer aggressively while helping you have the fewest side effects and best possible quality of life.

Our caring team of nurses will administer your treatments. They make your physical comfort a priority and care for your mental well-being. They know chemotherapy can cause you to feel anxious, but that having the right support can make all the difference. Like our entire cancer care team, they will be at your side offering strength and encouragement throughout your journey.
