Cancer Care

Top-Quality care without the travel.

A cancer diagnosis always hits too close to home. So let's treat it right here at home. It's true — you don't have to leave the Outer Banks community to receive state-of-the-art treatment and support.

Committed to optimal outcomes

From screening to diagnosis to treatment therapies, the Cancer Care team at The Outer Banks Hospital is here for you. We are part of an elite group of hospitals receiving a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). Accreditation is given only to those facilities that are committed to providing the highest level of quality cancer care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. With progressive facilities that include Outer Banks Hospital Oncology/Hematology, a Cancer Resource Center, a Radiation Therapy Center and Chemotherapy Infusion Suite, we offer advanced therapies, nurse navigator services, symptom management, support groups and much more. Whether you chose to have your services here locally or elsewhere, let our dedicated, expert team help you and your loved ones navigate your choices and the care you need — according to your wishes and your doctor's guidance.

Outer Banks Hospital Oncology/Hematology is located on the 2nd floor of the Medical Office Building. Their phone number is 252-449-7272.
