Treatment Options

The Schwab Family Cancer Center offers three major types of cancer treatments:

We also offer access to clinical trials via our membership with the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) under the affiliation of the University of Pittsburgh.

Our highly trained, compassionate staff works closely with patients to develop the best plan for each patient based upon the type of cancer, the stage of the cancer and other individual factors, such as age, health and personal preference.

Most treatments can be delivered on an outpatient basis in our private or group outpatient treatment rooms, such as chemotherapy, or non-emergency blood transfusions and other services, during daytime, evening or weekend hours.  When a hospital stay may be necessary to deliver or monitor treatment, the Schwab Family Cancer Center at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center also offers an inpatient oncology unit.
