Exceptional Cancer Care
Conveniently Close By
Hope – when paired with the treatment of cancer – is a word rooted in meticulous research, highly developed technology and the kind of commitment that makes it accessible on a community level. Such was the commitment responsible for the creation of Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center, where world-class diagnosis, treatment and prevention services are encompassed in a comprehensive close-to-home facility for residents in Hunterdon County and surrounding areas.
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, you will have many important issues to consider and decisions to make. But there is one very important thing you won’t have to worry about – that is, where to find the best possible treatment for your condition. That’s because the best in today’s cancer care is available at Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.
Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer as a Community Hospital Cancer Program.
The Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons has recognized the cancer program at Hunterdon Medical Center as offering high-quality cancer care. Only one in four hospitals that treat cancer receive this special approval. The recognition of our quality and commitment allows you access to the expert medical specialists who are involved in diagnosing and treating cancer.
Approval by the Commission on Cancer is given only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in diagnosis and treatment of cancer. To meet the standards necessary for Commission approval, each cancer program, and the organization that controls it, must undergo a rigorous evaluation process and a review of its performance. In order to maintain approval, facilities with approved cancer programs must undergo an on-site review every three years.
So, as you begin thinking about treatment and ongoing care for your condition, you can be assured that you won’t need to travel great distances from home, because you can receive the care needed right here in your own community. No one can guarantee the outcome of any type of treatment, but by coming to our approved cancer treatment program, you can be sure that you will receive the best in diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Also, consultative services will be available from all medical disciplines involved in diagnosing and treating cancer.

Fox Chase Cancer Center Partnership
Since 1993, Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center has been affiliated with the highly respected Fox Chase Cancer Center, one of 40 programs in the country designated as a comprehensive cancer center by the National Cancer Institute. This enviable alliance propelled Hunterdon Medical Center’s cancer program to new prominence. Not only did it pave the way for the opening of a cancer center to serve families who previously had to travel hours to receive radiation therapy, it brought the extraordinary resources of a nationally renowned program to Hunterdon County.
