The FitzPatrick Cancer Center offers a coordinated, patient-centered approach to caring for people with cancer.  Our team of highly skilled, compassionate health care providers work together to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those battling the disease.  They specialize in caring for cancer survivors – survivorship begins on the day of diagnosis.

For the convenience of our patients, we offer a full range of cancer treatment at the FitzPatrick Cancer Center, including:

Access to other services such as surgery, imaging, IV therapy and pastoral Care are equally as convenient because of our location within Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital.  

When the FitzPatrick Cancer Center opened in 1990, it set a new standard of cancer care in Clinton, Franklin and Essex counties.  Named after the late James FitzPatrick, a dedicated supporter of CVPH, the Cancer Center’s mission was to harness the collective talents of a variety of health care professionals under one roof and provide the highest quality of cancer care possible.  That standard of excellent care continues today.

The FitzPatrick Cancer Center is Commission on Cancer (CoC) accredited which is governed by the American College of Surgeons, the nationally recognized cancer accrediting agency, as a community comprehensive cancer center. CoC accreditation is granted to institutions committed to providing high-quality cancer care by demonstrating compliance with the CoC standards. Each cancer program must undergo a rigorous evaluation and review of its performance and compliance with the CoC standards every three years. The CoC accreditation standards supply the structure for providing all oncology patients with a full range of diagnostic, treatment, and supportive services either on-site or by referral, including community-based resources.

The American College of Radiation Oncologists (ACRO) also accredits the FitzPatrick Cancer Center. The ACRO reviews practices to ascertain that facilities, staffing and treatment programs are in accordance to accepted standards of modern day radiation therapy delivered in the United States.
