Discovering you have cancer is hard, and learning you have to travel for treatment makes it even harder. That's one of the reasons Unity Health joined forces with other local clinics and physician groups to form the Pyeatt Family Cancer Center—a treatment facility right here in your own community.
The Pyeatt Family Cancer Center's comprehensive approach to cancer care allows you to be diagnosed and treated in one convenient location that's close to the support of your home, family and friends.
The latest technology plus expert care
The Pyeatt Family Cancer Center features some of the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technology in the country. This includes the only PET/CT scanner and digital linear accelerator in the area. Digital mammography is available within the Pyeatt Family Cancer Center and at Harris Medical Center.
Our team of experts has board-certified medical oncologists and a radiation oncologist. All of the registered nurses in the infusion center are chemotherapy-certified, so you can relax knowing your care is in the best hands.
