About Hall-Perrine Cancer Center
The facility is designed for and with input from cancer patients, but it's the innovative and nationally recognized care within that makes it truly world-class. Our expert physicians and compassionate, oncology-dedicated staff work together to provide a comprehensive experience to patients and their families.
A Patient-Centered Focus
While the exterior is impressive, what goes on inside is the heart of the new cancer center.
The little things make a big difference to patients and their families – like a safe place to store personal items during treatment, a convenient boutique featuring comfortable wigs and beautiful scarves, and reserved, close parking.
Mercy reached out to those battling cancer and their families for input as well as researched other leading cancer centers, and the result is a thoughtfully designed, patient-centered building.
It is our sincere commitment to create a facility that sets the bar for cancer care, and more important, thoughtfully addresses the concerns and needs of our patients and their families.
