Introduction
Our Cancer Care Philosophy

Mountain States Health Alliance team members as caregivers create relationships, environments and service delivery centered on the patient through a holistic approach to healing that ministers to the mind, body and spirit.  MSHA caregivers believe that healing can exist without curing, but healing cannot exist without caring.

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy

A very sophisticated way of delivering radiation therapy, IMRT adds the ability to rapidly test and evaluate hundreds, even thousands of proposed options for therapy design before arriving at the best option for a particular patient.

Mammosite Radiation Therapy

This type of treatment lowers the number of radiation treatments from nearly 40 to just 10 by working from inside the breast.

This type of treatment lowers the number of radiation treatments from nearly 40 to just 10 by working from inside the breast.

The Regional Cancer Center maintains an affiliation with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Regional Cancer Center at JCMC is the only hospital in the region that can treat pediatric cancer with chemotherapy (at Niswonger Children’s Hospital) and radiation oncology (at JCMC). Johnson City Medical Center is also the only hospital in the region that treats acute leukemia and other malignant hematologic disorders.

Other services include:

  • Spiritual & Pastoral Care
  • Support groups
  • Community outreach
The design work for all five cancer centers incorporates feedback from patients, team members and physicians.
