Tony Teramana Cancer Center
Trinity Health System's Cancer Treatment capabilities grew substantially with the construction of the Tony Teramana Cancer Center in 2000. Since then, thousands of residents of the Tri-State area have received cancer treatment at the facility.
The Cancer Center has a unique partnership with the two health systems in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: Allegheny Health Network and The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Radiation Oncology. Services are provided through collaboration with radiation oncologists of Allegheny Health Network physicians. The Hematology Oncology services (chemotherapy) are provided through a collaboration with UPMC Cancer Center physicians. These partnerships help to provide patients with the best cancer care in our area.
We adhere to a rigorous set of standards in order to provide the best care possible. We are accredited by the American College of Surgeons, Commission on Cancer and the American College of Radiology. Our Oncology Program takes a multidisciplinary approach, through proactive treatment planning which includes collaboration between surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, oncologists and others who specialize in taking care of cancer patients.
In line with Trinity Health System's values of service, reverence and stewardship, the Tony Teramana Cancer Center can meet the needs of cancer patients through a patient-centered approach with compassion, dignity and respect. This service is due largely to the generosity of the Tony Teramana family, whose $1 million gift made this center a world-class cancer treatment facility.
Since opening, the Cancer Center became the premier cancer treatment facility in the Ohio Valley. As evidence of its quality cancer care, we were featured in the July 2006 issue of US News & World Report's Best Hospitals Edition.
In 2007, Trinity officials realized that the facility had become overcrowded and needed to be expanded. By 2010, an $8.8 million-expansion doubled our square footage; renovated 95% of existing space; and allowed us to obtain a new Linear Accelerator, a dedicated wide bore CT simulator, and a new PET/CT scanner.
This expansion also helped to provide additional space for chemotherapy infusion. An open floor plan provides patients the most comfortable environment, with natural light and plenty of space for family members to accompany them. This beautiful space houses 25 private (petitioned/curtained) spaces.
Our facility takes a patient-centered approach to care. Services also include: nutritional services, lab services, pastoral care services, the American Cancer Society Resource Center; volunteer program; Look Good Feel Better program; Oncology Patient Advocacy, cancer support groups and various cancer screenings.
