Cancer patients in Roseville, the Central Valley, and Yuba-Sutter counties may be able to get
some or all of their care closer to home.
Comprehensive treatment, overseen by specialists from UC
Davis Cancer Center, is now available at Mercy
Cancer Center in Merced. Since opening its doors in 2000, Mercy Cancer Center has offered state-of-the-art
radiation oncology services provided by UC Davis
Cancer Center physicians. In August the center also began offering chemotherapy and other hematology
and oncology services. The hematology and oncology service is staffed by UC Davis faculty physicians.
With the recruitment of a new, full-time cancer specialist, the UC
Davis Cancer Center Roseville Clinic has started offering patients access to a wide range of cancer
clinical trials. That's in addition to the comprehensive hematology and oncology services already offered
at the Roseville site.
Hospital, UC Davis Cancer Center also
operates the Fremont-Rideout Cancer Center in Marysville, which offers comprehensive cancer care and access
to clinical trials for the Yuba-Sutter area.
