Chemotherapy uses specific anti-cancer drugs to kill and eradicate cancer cells. It can be given alone, or in combination with radiation therapy, or as a follow-up to surgery. Chemotherapy can be delivered on an inpatient or outpatient basis, depending on what your physician prescribes. Medications are available to help reduce or manage the side effects of chemotherapy.
The Holy Cross Outpatient Infusion Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Patients being treated with chemotherapy can receive their treatment in a safe, comfortable environment.
