Prevention is powerful medicine. In fact, the American Cancer Society says more than half of all cancer deaths are preventable, simply by making healthy choices to avoid disease. At Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare, we serve as your partner in health and offer screenings and programs that help you stay well.

Oncology Care Team

Those undergoing treatment will benefit from the expertise of our medical and radiation oncologists who work closely with the patient's primary care physicians and surgeons to coordinate care and develop individualized treatment plans. Physicians are supported by talented oncology certified nurses, radiation therapists, nurse navigators, social workers, dietitians, chaplains and other healthcare providers.

Complementary Therapies

Complementary therapies are used with conventional medicine (not in place of it) and are part of our holistic approach to patient wellness. We offer two popular therapies: acupuncture, where needles are inserted at certain body points to help control pain, discomfort and other symptoms, and Reiki therapy, which moves the body's energies back toward balance. Other forms of complementary therapies include aromatherapy, pet therapy and yoga.

Clinical Trials

Patients can volunteer for research through clinical trials. Although some people may think of clinical trials as a last resort, many of these studies are geared toward first-line treatment. In fact, all cancer drugs have been tested in this way.
