The Holy Cross Hospital Cancer Institute cares for more than 1,000 cancer inpatients annually, more than any other hospital in Montgomery and Prince George's counties. By combining state-of-the-art treatment with our mission to care for the whole person, we provide exceptional care and compassionate support for patients with cancer and their families.
Our institute's comprehensive services include inpatient and outpatient diagnostic and treatment services. Holy Cross Hospital is accredited by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program. Patients receive academic-level care in a community setting through the hospital's participation in prevention, early detection and treatment clinical trials sponsored by various government agencies, universities and foundations.
We offer specialized expertise in women's cancers and prostate cancer. Specialists at the hospital perform more gynecologic and gynecologic oncology surgeries than any other hospital in Montgomery and Prince George's counties. Holy Cross Hospital also has cared for thousands of men with prostate cancer, helping to pioneer radioactive seed implantation in the region.
Holy Cross Hospital's Oncology Unit offers private rooms for most people who need inpatient cancer care, and the hospital operates its own home care and hospice program. A supportive team of nurse navigators, social workers, palliative and pastoral care providers, pet and art therapists, nutritionists, cancer registrars and others promote healing and enhance comfort for patients and families.
