Cancer Care

Our extraordinary Cancer Care Center gives patients and their families extra hope.

The statistics are startling. One in two people will get cancer in their lifetime. One of the best places to go to become a survivor is the Covenant Cancer Care Center. As a regional referral center, Covenant HealthCare brings a full continuum of cancer care to the communities in Saginaw, Bay, Tuscola, Midland, Genesee and Gratiot Counties. From diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation, our compassionate team of cancer experts will stand by you every step of the way from discovery to recovery.

What makes our cancer care so extraordinary?

We offer comprehensive and compassionate cancer care.
The Covenant Cancer Care Center’s dedicated team of experienced doctors and clinicians take the time to understand each individual patient diagnosis. We develop integrated treatment plans for each patient based on clinical, physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Using a multidisciplinary approach, the latest technologies are available to deliver extraordinary care, ensuring “more tomorrows” for every patient.

We deliver a continuum of Cancer Care Services.
Cancer patients and their families face difficult challenges – physically, emotionally and financially. Our services range from prevention, detection, and education to diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. As a leader in advancing programs that support the full continuum of care, Covenant believes the fight against cancer impacts more than the patient. Our services also provide support for the patient and their family members.

Reaching out to our community to provide cancer education and prevention programs is an important part of our focus. The Covenant Cancer Care Center provides services to the community at health fairs and dedicated screening events.
