FRHS Regional Cancer Therapy Center

The Frederick Regional Health System (FRHS) Cancer Therapy Center is just across the street from the main hospital campus. Our outpatient cancer care center provides the best possible care for our patients. We focus on providing a caring, helpful atmosphere conducive to our patients’ well-being.

Oncology is the study, diagnosis, and treatment of cancers and tumors. An oncologist is a cancer specialist who works in the diagnosis of cancer, as well as in staging and grading the disease. Oncologists help deliver care and help patients manage treatment and pain. Oncology social workers, oncology nurses, pathologists, and diagnostic radiologists are among the other professionals who supply care in cancer treatment.
