Conquering cancer is the ultimate goal of The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center at Community Medical Center.

As a leading provider of cancer services in the Ocean County region, our focus is to combat this deadly disease through a broadening arsenal of world-class technologies and innovative programs in all areas of cancer prevention, detection and treatment. It has been nationally recognized by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons with accreditation since 1986.

We take a comprehensive and compassionate approach to cancer care, coordinated by a multidisciplinary team of experienced physicians and specialists who are highly trained in their fields of expertise.

We offer a Lymphedema Program for breast cancer patients that focuses on early assessment and treatment to help improve function and prevent long-term complications. And our Oncology Rehabilitation program offers physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language therapy to mitigate the damaging effects of cancer or cancer treatment. We have one of the largest physical therapy staffs in acute care in New Jersey.

Our regional cancer center is the nucleus of exceptional cancer care, provided in a variety of settings that offer patients and their families a comfortable and healing environment close to home. Our state-of-the-art outpatient facilities are conveniently located on campus for the delivery of chemotherapy and advanced radiation therapy.
