At the Kirkland Cancer Center, we are redefining the healing process. Whether you are looking for a second opinion or physicians to be with you through your cancer journey, we are here to serve you.
The Kirkland Cancer Center works cohesively with the Jackson-Madison County General Hospital Surgery and Radiology Departments where surgical procedures, stereotactic biopsies, bone scans, CT scans, MRIs, and mammographies are routinely performed. Clinical research trials are available to eligible patients as well.
The Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology Departments strive to meet each patient's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs during their radiation therapy, chemotherapy, medical oncology, and other treatments. To assure comprehensive treatment, these professionals work closely with nutritional, psychological, social service, and pastoral care staff as well as physicians.
A multidisciplinary group of physicians attends weekly Tumor Board meetings to discuss patient treatments. Tumor Registry, another educational resource, assists cancer doctors with their analyses of cancer therapies and subsequent outcomes.
Meeting the special needs of those patients and their families facing life-limiting illness, Hospice of West Tennessee assures quality of life and provides emotional support through palliative care. Community Education remains a Cancer Center priority with sponsorship of free cancer screenings and programs reaching thousands yearly.
The Executive Director of the Kirkland Cancer Center, Gina Myracle, is available to patients, their families and the community to listen and find answers to your questions.
