The Bennett & Suzy Katz Cancer Resource Center
The Bennett & Suzy Katz Cancer Resource Center at Dominican Hospital offers patients and their families and friends a place to get the support they need. The Katz Cancer Resource Center provides access to information and services related to all aspects of cancer care, at no charge.
Our supportive certified oncology nurses (RNs) provide guidance in sorting through questions about cancer, assistance in coordinating care and referrals to support services like Dominican Home Health. They’ll be with you, facilitating the continuity of care in the inpatient and outpatient setting and providing guidance for caregivers.
Individuals with cancer and their families are encouraged to set up a one-on-one appointment with a KCRC oncology nurse to design a personalized program for support, education and guidance. Everything a patient, or caregiver needs to get through a diagnosis of cancer is available at the KCRC at no charge.
