Visitor Restrictions:

In our ongoing effort to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff, no visitors will be able to accompany patients at Centra Alan B. Pearson Regional Cancer Center for the duration of this crisis. We understand that this may be a difficult adjustment for our patients and their loved ones, and we don’t take this step lightly. However, it is a critically important measure to protect our patients and staff. This change means:

  • No visitors are allowed to accompany adult patients, with very limited exceptions for patients with significant physical or cognitive disabilities.
  • All people entering the cancer center will be screened for symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath. Any pre-approved visitor with obvious signs of illness will be kindly asked to leave.
  • All side entrances are closed. Patients must be screened and enter through the front, main doors.
  • If you have symptoms of a cold or flu (cough, fever of 100.4 or greater, difficulty breathing, nasal congestion, rash, body aches, chills, sore throat or if you have recently been tested for COVID-19), please call your oncologist before your appointment.
  • If you are under treatment, we want you to keep your scheduled appointment if you can safely do so. We have no plans to postpone appointments for patients who are actively being treated for cancer or related conditions.
  • We know that loved ones are a vital part of the healing process. When possible, we encourage you to use your smartphone or other mobile device to stay in touch with your friends and loved ones during your visit.

Centra's comprehensive cancer services and treatments range from the newest minimally invasive robotic surgery and Trilogy linear accelerator to chemotherapy, biological, and targeted drug therapies; genetic testing; nurse navigation; survivorship; and clinical trials.

Centra Alan B.Pearson Regional Cancer Center treats a broad range of cancers. In 2008, Centra opened the Pearson Cancer Center, bringing radiation and medical oncology together in one facility for patient convenience.

Designed with cancer patients and their families in mind, the Pearson Cancer Center combines a comprehensive array of services in a center of hope and healing. A team of board-certified physicians and highly skilled clinicians collaborates on personalized treatment plans for patients and supports them through every step of their cancer journeys. This team approach has earned Centra national recognition with full accreditation and a commendation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. The Pearson Cancer Center is also an accredited facility with the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. In addition to radiation and medical oncologists, the multidisciplinary team includes a broad range of expertise from nurse practitioners and nurses to clinical trials, patient navigators, social workers, and chaplaincy staff members.

There are many ways to volunteer and positively impact the lives of our patients as they are walking through their cancer journey. Our volunteers play a vital role here at the center and we would love to have you join us. If you are interested or would like further information, reach out to our Community Liaision, Molleigh Tomlin, at molleigh.tomlin@centrahealth.com or 434.200.6093.
