Fairﬁeld Medical Center offers a
comprehensive cancer program that
is accredited by the American College
of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer.
As part of our program, we offer
surgical oncology, medical oncology
and radiation oncology, as well
as support services such as our
oncology nurse navigators. The
Cancer Resource Center is the newest
addition to our cancer care program.
The Fairfield Medical Cancer Resource Center is open to any cancer patient and their support people. Educational classes, support services and retail products are offered to reduce stress and ease recovery and coping processes. The center is staffed Monday through Friday (or by appointment) by a Fairfield Medical Center coordinator and volunteers, many of whom are cancer survivors.
The Fairﬁeld Medical Cancer Resource Center provides cancer-related information and education to the community, retail items for patients and meeting room space for programs such as support groups and educational classes.
FMC’s Cancer Resource Center will provide services, programs and patient support that will meet the needs of patients and their families in Fairﬁeld County as well as the other communities we serve. The goal of the Cancer Resource Center is to give valuable resources close to home. Conveniently located in Lancaster, the Cancer Resource Center is available to residents throughout Southeastern Ohio.

As a local gospel quartet member, there is nothing John Fortner loves more than traveling to different churches to share his love of music.
However, since his diagnosis with stage 1 colon cancer in January, John has been doing more than just singing at these concerts: He’s been sharing his personal story to raise awareness about getting screened early.
