Why choose PinnacleHealth Cancer Institute?

At the PinnacleHealth Cancer Institute we treat our patients like family. As one of the largest providers of cancer care in the region, we understand that a cancer diagnosis is just the beginning of a journey that will affect each person and his or her loved ones in a unique way.

We are fully committed to treating the whole person, not just cancer. We support and guide patients in making the right decisions for their health. At PinnacleHealth, our patients can be cared for close to home, while also having access to the same treatment care plans offered by other major cancer centers across the United States.

Expertise In All Aspects of Cancer Care

For over 30 years, the PinnacleHealth Cancer Institute has provided the highest clinical standard of care in the area. Our clinicians are at the forefront of the most advanced treatment options available, including minimally invasive cancer surgery using the da Vinci robotic surgical system and CyberKnife, which uses pinpoint radiation to eliminate tumors without damaging surrounding tissue.

Our physicians have excellent credentials and top-level training at nationally recognized programs, including Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, the National Cancer Institute, Baylor College, MD Anderson, Weill Cornell Medical Center, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. They work with our nursing, therapist and support teams to offer the newest treatment methods and technology.

Treatment and support services are offered in one of our two state-of-the-art facilities: the Ortenzio Cancer Center at PinnacleHealth, located on PinnacleHealth's West Shore Campus in Hampden Township; and the PinnacleHealth Cancer Center, located on our Community Campus in suburban Harrisburg.

Treating All Types Of Cancer

At PinnacleHealth we are expert at treating a wide range of cancer types. Specialized programs include:

A diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelming. Our nurse navigators provide patients and families with the personal guidance and support they need through diagnosis, treatment and into survivorship. The support of a nurse navigator in addition to the care provided by your physician and health care team results in a better experience and better outcomes.

A Full Range Of Cancer Screening Services
