The Saint Agnes difference
We’re committed to making your cancer treatment as comfortable and convenient as possible—both for you and your family. We’re here for you every step of the way to answer questions, offer support and remind you that you’re not alone in this journey.
A fast, accurate diagnosis
An early and accurate diagnosis can make all the difference when it comes to treating your cancer. At Saint Agnes Hospital, our cancer doctors have the technology, resources and know-how to provide you with the most detailed diagnosis. Saint Agnes cancer patients are evaluated during a Saint Agnes cancer conference - attended by some of the region’s most experienced and skilled medical oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists. Together, they review each diagnosis, discuss all options for treatment, and formulate the best plan of attack. We make you an integral part of the process, consulting with you and your family to ensure that the recommended treatment fits you and your lifestyle.
Pioneers in cancer treatment
Saint Agnes was the first hospital in Maryland to introduce tomotherapy, the primary tool in radiation therapy. This technology lets our physicians pinpoint and target cancerous tumors without harming any of the surrounding healthy tissue.
If surgery is recommended for your cancer, you’ll benefit from one of Maryland’s most experienced surgical oncology teams. Likewise, our medical oncology team provides unmatched care and support to coordinate chemotherapy and other cancer treatments.
