Regional Cancer Center at Wellington
The Regional Cancer Center at Wellington has advanced technology and a caring team of healthcare providers. The staff is committed to providing programs for early detection, diagnosis, treatment and long-term follow-up care to each cancer patient.
The cancer program has strong relations with many of the supporting nonprofit organizations, including the American Cancer Society, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Hospice.
The Regional Cancer Center, established in 1992, is a dedicated outpatient radiation treatment facility. The center is partnered with 21st Century Oncology to provide radiation therapy and is now a joint venture with South Florida Radiation Oncology.
The philosophy of the staff at the center is to provide services in an environment that supports and promotes the highest quality of life, sensitive to the specific physical, psychological and educational needs of each patient.
The Regional Cancer Center not only provides advanced diagnostics and cancer treatments, but also provides other important services to cancer patients, families and the community, such as prostate cancer and breast cancer support groups, nutritional counseling services, social services, nursing support, courtesy van transportation, free screenings and educational lectures.
Cancer Information Service

The staff can answer questions (in English or Spanish) and can send National Cancer Institute booklets about cancer. They also know about local resources and services. One toll-free number, 1-800-4-CANCER (1-800-422-6237), connects callers all over the country with the office that serves their area.
