Vidant Medical Center

Vidant Medical Center and Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center, located next to each other on the medical campus in Greenville, work hand-in-hand treating cancer patients in Greenville. Services between the two facilities are easy to access because the buildings are connected to each other.

Oncology clinics, radiation therapy, radiosurgery and biotherapy are offered at Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center.

Vidant Medical Center offers chemotherapy, radiosurgery and inpatient care.

 

Chemotherapy

Outpatient chemotherapy takes place in Vidant Medical Center’s Outpatient Infusion Center on the first floor of the hospital. It’s a spacious suite outfitted with comfortable loungers. We can treat up to 44 patients at a time. The suite is large enough for patients to have up to two visitors. Private rooms are available for pediatric patients and for adults needing special accommodations.

Staff members at the Outpatient Infusion Center are specially trained, with many nurses holding advanced certification in cancer care. All have significant experience with chemotherapy and/or infusion therapy. They are well-versed in the growing number of clinical trials we offer here. Best of all, they are dedicated to offering care that is sensitive and responsive to your needs.

Hours are 7:00 am to 11:00 pm, Monday through Friday, and 7:00 am to 3:00 pm Saturday. You may park in the hospital visitor’s lot or take advantage of the valet parking service at the admissions entrance. If you are being seen in the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center, you may park there, and we will transport you to your chemotherapy treatment.

 

Radiosurgery

Patients in eastern North Carolina are fortunate to have access to two of the most advanced radiosurgery technologies, CyberKnife® and Gamma Knife®, for treating cancers.

CyberKnife®

This advanced form of radiosurgery is a non-invasive alternative to traditional surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body, including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney. The treatment delivers beams of high-dose radiation to tumors with extreme accuracy. This service is located in the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center.

Gamma Knife®

Gamma Knife uses a precisely targeted array of narrow beams of radiation to treat brain lesions. It is highly effective even in the most critical parts of the brain, yet the healthy tissue around the lesion receives very little radiation. This service is located in the Vidant Medical Center.


Inpatient care

Some cancer regimens require treatment that can only be provided through inpatient care. Vidant Medical Center has three inpatient areas. Our 3-West and 1-East medical oncology units provide comprehensive care for patients needing general to intermediate-level care for active cancer treatment and symptom management. This offers patients and their families the added comfort and convenience of remaining in one place during the various phases of care.

Specially-trained physicians and nurses treat a wide range of solid tumor cancers in locations including but not limited to the breast, lung, prostate, colon and esophagus. We also treat hematological malignancies such as leukemia, lymphoma and myelomas, as well as benign conditions like coagulopathies and sickle cell anemia.

Our 30-bed surgical unit, located on 1-South, provides a seamless transition from surgical oncology to medical oncology treatment. Patient care is provided for thoracic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynecological and head and neck procedures. Our Return to Care initiative includes hourly rounding, bedside shift reporting and the use of white boards in patient rooms – all designed to share information and increase patient and family involvement in all aspects of care.

The inpatient cancer care team at Vidant Medical Center includes physicians, fellows, residents, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, social workers and a host of other care partners and support staff. This collaborative team approach delivers excellent care in the hospital and also provides patients and their families with the knowledge and skills necessary for transitioning to independence and recovery at home.

Patient safety and compassionate care is our goal. We are in continual compliance with evidence-based practice guidelines and place a special priority on preventing central venous line and urinary tract infections. We also recognize that a healing environment is vital to achieving good outcomes. Patient advisors have been essential in discovering new and innovative ways to increase patient comfort with special furniture and other amenities. Additional practices such as scheduled quiet times, exercise opportunities and pet therapy enhance the healing environment.

 

Palliative Care

Palliative care is given to patients who have a serious or life-threatening disease, such as cancer. It is designed to manage uncomfortable symptoms and side effects of the illness and to address the related emotional, social and spiritual issues. Palliative care is given along with other cancer treatment, and has been proven to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

 

Complementary and alternative therapies

We offer patients animal-assisted therapy; exercise opportunities; Healing Touch, a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy; massage therapy; recreational therapy; and Reiki therapy, a Japanese energy-based therapy that promotes healing and wellness.

 

Outreach

We offer cancer screening programs and prevention and awareness events throughout eastern North Carolina. If you are interested in planning or attending an event, call us at 252-847-9507.

 

Support groups and survivorship programs

We offer a variety of programs for patients and family members in cooperation with Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center. These support groups offer information, education and companionship. Patients discuss problems and share strategies for coping. For information about these programs, call 252-847-9450 or 252-847-7943. You may also visit our survivorship and support services page.
