THE STORY:

COMMUNITY MEDICAL CENTER FOUNDATION wrote -

Community Medical Center offers a comprehensive array of services including advanced cancer care in the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center. The Cancer Center offers a full continuum of preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic and support services in an inpatient and outpatient setting. The Center offers state-of-the-art technology including a Rapid Arc Linear Accelerator, Cyberknife, Infusion Suite and access to clinical research trials. Our oncology program is the recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Commission on Cancer of The American College of Surgeons’ and is one of only two hospitals in New Jersey and one of 75 in the nation to receive this prestigious designation.

Recognizing that a cancer diagnosis is stressful and life changing, Community Medical Center established a transportation program for patients needing treatment in the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center.  Our Regional Cancer Center sees 200 patients each month for radiation or infusion therapy.  Patients receiving radiation therapy treatment need as few as 5 and as many as 35 daily visits and chemotherapy patients schedules can be one day a week, once a month or 5 or more daily visits. These treatments can last up to a year. Currently our transportation program provides 2,500 round trips each year.

The need for transportation for our patients will grow with our aging population.  The transportation services in the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center are free of charge and remove a significant barrier for patients and families by providing a safe and reliable means of transportation.
