Cancer patients have enough on their minds. The Plymouth Cancer Institute offers advanced treatments and quality care conveniently close to home for our patients who live in Marshall County and surrounding communities.
Advanced Treatment & Technology
Our Wide-Bore CT Simulator helps physicians plan the course of radiation therapy before treatment begins. This advanced equipment is designed to be more comfortable for patients and reduce any feeling of claustrophobia.
The Linear Accelerator speeds up treatment for patients and delivers more targeted radiation, minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissues. The 120-leaf MCL provides custom blocking around critical structures while optimizing radiation dose to the target area, creating precise treatment custom to each patient.
A Laboratory is located inside the medical oncology department, providing added convenience for patients, physicians and staff. Radiology services are located next door, and diagnostic tests and screenings can be scheduled before or after treatments, minimizing a patient’s time driving back and forth to the hospital.
The Outpatient Treatment & Infusion Center at the Plymouth Campus provides:
Blood & blood product transfusions
IV medication administration
IV fluids for hydration
Radiation treatment is directed by radiation oncologist Guy Kedziora, MD. Dr. Kedziora has practiced in the Michiana area since 1991 and is active on the medical staffs at the SJRMC Plymouth and Mishawaka hospitals.
Medical oncology care at the Cancer Institute is provided by Ronald H. Kawauchi, MD, board certified medical oncologist and hematologist. Dr. Kawauchi offers inpatient and outpatient consultations and medical oncology services to better meet the needs of patients in Plymouth and surrounding communities.
To assist our patients and families through the treatment process, the Plymouth Cancer Institute also offers the support of an Oncology Patient Navigator, whose services are free of charge. Cancer patients also have access to the services and resources offered by:
- Nutritional Counselors
