About CalvertHealth Hematology & Oncology

At CalvertHealth Hematology and Oncology, we are dedicated to the health and well-being of all our patients. We diagnose and treat blood disorders (hematology) and a wide range of cancers (oncology). Our treatment plans are customized to the individual patient and take advantage of the latest technologies and research for both diagnosis and treatment. We partner with your primary care provider and participate with a multidisciplinary team of specialist providers so we are always ready to deliver the most appropriate care options for you and your specific condition.

Hematology

Hematology is the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of blood and bleeding disorders, from various anemias to a range of lymphomas. In addition, our hematologists provide treatments for blood clotting disorders, bleeding disorders, leukemias, benign hematologic conditions, hemophilia, multiple myeloma, white blood cell disorders and much more.

Oncology

Medical Oncology is the diagnosis and treatment of various cancers, including breast, bladder, lung, prostate, and colorectal. Your medical oncologist will coordinate and oversee your treatment plan based on the type and stage of cancer and your personal preferences.

Your treatment plan may include pharmacotherapy such as chemotherapy, immuno and hormonal therapies and targeted therapy, which blocks the growth of cancer cells by interfering with specific targeted molecules needed for tumor growth. Surgery and radiation therapy may also be an integral part of your treatment plan, and your oncologist will coordinate with other providers at CalvertHealth Medical Center and/or other area medical centers to develop and deliver your specific treatment plan.

All our providers are part of the multidisciplinary team of cancer care providers and participate in our weekly tumor boards where we assess each patient’s specific diagnosis and, as a team, develop the most appropriate treatment plan for each individual patient. The team includes specialists in medical oncology, specialist surgery (breast, thoracic, colorectal, general, plastic), pulmonology, gynecology, urology, urogynecology, radiation oncology and interventional radiology. We also work closely with a team of oncology nurse navigators who are specially trained to help patients through the process of managing their care.

Light Infusion Center

To help ensure high quality patient care in a timely manner and provide a comfortable environment for our patients, CalvertHealth Hematology and Oncology has built a dedicated infusion center that offers several immuno and chemo therapies, iron infusion and other supportive treatments. This center is only available to our patients and is adjacent to our offices in the Medical Office Building. Patients also have access to the main infusion center at CHMC for procedures that require longer duration infusions or more.
