Cancer Care

MPH is the only hospital outside of Duke University Health System to offer access to both Duke medical oncologists and radiation oncologists in one convenient location. Maria Parham Cancer Center’s collaborative care approach brings together the expertise and perspectives of physicians from a variety of specialties and disciplines. Patients needing both disciplines of cancer therapy are seamlessly seen by radiation and medical oncologists. The multidisciplinary approach continues with skilled local surgeons and a support staff of registered nurses, radiation therapists, social workers, clerical personnel and even patient navigators who are there to escort you through the entire process.

Accredited Cancer Center

The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) has granted a Three-Year Accreditation to Maria Parham Cancer Center.  To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed 34 CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process, and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care.  

Maria Parham Cancer Center is a testament to the way that teamwork between a world-renowned healthcare institution like Duke Health and a community-based hospital like MPH can create a special place where patients can receive the quality, expertise and commitment they deserve.
