They attend to all the needs of our patients and their families, often forming long term relationships. This approach translates into excellent patient care and a supportive environment within our state-of-the-art facility.
CMH's partnership with VCU Massey Cancer Center brings local cancer patients the benefits of a nationally recognized, NCI-designated* cancer center with first-rate cancer specialists, highly coordinated care and tailored treatment plans. CMH patients also have access to Massey's cutting-edge clinical trials, which offer added and advanced treatment options.
*Designation by the NCI (National Cancer Institute) places Massey among the top 4 percent of cancer centers in the country and among only two such centers in the state.
