The Capital Health Center for Oncology, located at Capital Health Medical Center - Hopewell, is the area’s most advanced provider of cancer treatment delivered by some of the most experienced medical experts. At our center, a team of physicians from related fields such as medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgery, neurosurgery, digestive health, radiology, plastic and reconstructive surgery and other specialties collaborate and provide patients with a network of physicians trained in the most complex oncology issues.
Capital Health Medical Center - Hopewell is the only hospital in the region where you will also have advanced treatment options such as CyberKnife® Radiosurgery and da Vinci® Robotic Surgery. We were also the first hospital in the region to offer the state-of-the-art TrueBeam Linear Accelerator for traditional 3D conformal radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), RapidArc radiotherapy, and stereotactic radiosurgery. We offer high-dose-rate (HDR) radiation therapy for multiple treatment areas. We also provide personalized medicine, such as tumor marker testing, and the latest imaging technology for digital mammography, 3D mammography (also known as breast tomosynthesis), molecular breast imaging, PET/CT, and 3T MRI.
Our entire team is uniquely equipped to provide advanced cancer therapies with experience and compassion. We recently earned the 2015 Outstanding Achievement Award from American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer, in addition to their Accreditation with Gold Commendation, for achieving excellence in providing the highest quality cancer care. We've also been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR, an organization focused on the practice of radiology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services, has also designated us as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence for earning four national accreditations in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. Our nurses have received the prestigious Magnet® recognition for Excellence in Nursing Service three times from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Our hospitals have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of ApprovalTM for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with national standards for healthcare quality and safety.
