Putnam County Hospital offers a peaceful setting for patients who are undergoing cancer treatments. Our unit has seven infusion bays adjacent to the nursing stations and three private examination rooms. We provide a comprehensive plan with holistic care that meets the medical, spiritual, and emo
tional needs of our clients. The most up-to-date treatment is delivered from physicians and medical professionals who know and care about our patients and their families.
Dr. Sameer Ahmed, a physician with Franciscan Physician Network, joined the Cancer Center in 2015. Dr. Ahmed sees patients at the Cancer Center on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The Cancer Center is also staffed by Registered Nurses who have been oncology trained. Continued education concerning cancer, the most up-to-date treatments, and symptom management is important to us. Registered nurses are oncology-certified through the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), a national organization. Active membership in the local Illiana Chapter of ONS allows the nursing staff to attend monthly meetings to discuss new and current treatments.
The Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation is renewed every three years by adhering to stringent guidelines that ensure our clients receive the best care possible. Our first review was conducted in 1988 and the Cancer Center has remained accredited with the last survey conducted in 2016.
In compliance with the accreditation process and to continue growth, our hospital physicians, surgeons, radiologists and oncology staff meet regularly for professional development and discussion regarding trends for our particular area.
