The Cancer Institute, An Overview

Saint Agnes Hospital is leading Maryland in the battle against cancer. Very few cancer centers have more advanced ways to diagnose, treat, and help people beat cancer than the Saint Agnes Cancer Institute. Our physicians, oncologists, and surgeons are world class, and they attack each case from every angle as a multidisciplinary team. Our treatments include every radiation, chemotherapy, and surgical options available. Our brand new Baltimore facility and technologies are state-of-the-art. Most importantly our approach is just as uncompromising as our goal. To turn every cancer patient into a cancer survivor.

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 physicians have the technology, resources and knowledge 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, this specialized team reviews each diagnosis, discusses all options for treatment, and formulates the best plan of attack for you. We also 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.

  • A comprehensive chemotherapy program
  • A state-of-the-art radiation oncology program
  • Innovative surgical oncology
  • Dedicated inpatient oncology unit
