State-of-the-Art Cancer Treatment
With access to anti-cancer drug clinical trials, cutting-edge technology,
and the highest possible accreditation with the American College of Surgeons,
Commission on Cancer, Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center is the best
option for cancer patients in the region. Our hospital's suite of
oncology services are designed to combine expert care with a personal
touch, bringing together decades' worth of experience with the field's
most recent cancer treatment technology.
Our oncology services include:
- Radiation Treatment
- Medical Oncology / Hematology
- Nutritional Services
Using a multi-disciplinary approach, our physicians meet once a week to
discuss our patients' treatment plans. They provide each other with
insight and the benefits of experience, ensuring that our patients receive
the most effective care possible. As a result, our cancer patients receive
treatment that attacks their cancer on multiple fronts quickly and effectively.
Radiation therapy uses high-energy penetrating rays to destroy cancer cells.
The key to effective radiation is ensuring that healthy tissue is affected
as little as possible while the cancer is addressed aggressively. Our
radiation treatment equipment is the
best technology in the field. TomoTherapy HD technology and Varian Trilogy system attacks tumors and
cancer cells with maximum precision and intensity without damaging surrounding
tissue. The result is faster, easier, and more effective cancer treatment.

Medical Oncology / Hematology
Our medical oncologists are also certified in hematology, equipping them
to treat a broad range of cancer and blood disorders. Because hematology
and oncology overlap in many areas of practice, having a doctor who has
specialized in both is a major resource and a powerful way to ensure you
are receiving the most well-rounded care possible. Our specialists help
patients with chemotherapies, hormone therapies, immune therapies, biologic
therapies, and more.

hematology services help provide the best care to our cancer patients.
Our registered dieticians create custom diets for cancer patients, who
often need to change their nutritional intake during treatment. Precise
diet plans customized to your needs can help you recover faster, feel
better, and can even aid the effectiveness of your treatment. Having a
medical professional handle your diet may also help if you've been
experiencing problems with nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea that has not
improved with medication.
