Cancer Care Services

In December 2011, the comprehensive cancer care program at Fairfield Medical Center received a three-year accreditation with commendation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.

The accreditation followed a rigorous on- site inspection of FMC’s care protocols and practices. The program has been accredited since 1998. Fewer than 25 percent of all hospitals in the United States receive the Commission’s accreditation.

As an accredited cancer program, FMC patients are ensured access to comprehensive care, including: multi-specialty teams to coordinate best treatment options, state-of-the-art equipment and services, access to cancer registry database and access to FMC’s new Cancer Resource Center.

Fairfield Medical Center's inclusive cancer care center offers three cancer service lines including chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. 

Opened in January 2013, the Cancer Resource Center is located at 616 Forest Rose Avenue, Lancaster, Ohio. The Cancer Resource Center offers education and support to cancer patients and their families, a retail area and community classes geared towards cancer patients.
