About the John H. “Jack” Burbage Regional Cancer Care Center
The new 18,000-square-foot Regional Cancer Care Center, which is to be
built on hospital-owned property at the corner of Rt. 113 and Old Ocean
City Boulevard (Rt. 346) in Berlin, Md., will provide one centrally-located,
convenient facility for the care and treatment of individuals with cancer
and blood disorders.
In addition to existing medical oncology and chemotherapy infusion services
and integrative therapies, the new center will include radiation oncology;
PET imaging; laboratory services; community education and support facilities;
and telemedicine technology that will allow patients and their physicians
to consult with other cancer care experts, preventing unnecessary travel
for consultation and follow up care for patients who may require more
intensive cancer care services.
Construction will be complete in early 2018.
