Hurricane Ian Monday 5pm Update: The Hurricane Ian 5pm update came with some pretty big changes. Starting with the strength. Ian is now a 100 mph hurricane as it closes…

A cancer diagnosis changes lives. That’s why the brightest medical minds in Southwest Florida got together to form the Regional Cancer Center, an all-encompassing program that helps patients both in the hospital and in outpatient settings. RCC provides the same services as any cancer hospital in the country — and now we don’t have to travel to find them.  

But it’s that personal, passionate spark that sets the RCC above the rest. Patients overwhelmed with appointments, tests and treatments – not to mention stress and fear – will get to know their care teams on a first-name basis and talk to nurse navigators who guide them through treatment and make sure family members stay involved.  

  • Regional Cancer Care Outpatient at the Sanctuary

    RCC’s Sanctuary location helps seasonal residents seamlessly continue their cancer treatments when they are in SW Florida, easing travel worries and burdens. For area visitors diagnosed locally, the RCC helps them begin their journey.  

    The Sanctuary also provides a healing garden, meditation center, resource library, support groups, yoga, acupuncture, and a boutique for cards, gifts, jewelry, wigs and accessories, hats and scarves.
