Cancer Care and Treatment
Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can be frightening. Patients need caring support, as well as the best medical care available. At IU Health Methodist Hospital, we aggressively treat all forms of cancer, providing our patients with treatment plans developed specifically for them.
Our hospital provides radiation therapy, inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy infusion services and surgery. Our patients benefit from the support and services of a large, tertiary hospital where our team—including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pharmacists and nurses—work together to provide individualized and compassionate care for every patient.
IU Health Methodist is part of Indiana’s only academic radiation oncology practice. This practice also includes the IU Health Proton Therapy Center. Proton therapy is a precise, non-invasive surgical procedure that targets tumors and causes minimal damage to surrounding tissues, as compared to conventional therapy.
Our oncologists are also active in research to improve diagnosis and treatment of various cancers. We also work closely the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), and our patients are eligible for clinical studies through current clinical research projects run by our physicians.

Our biannual camp for adult cancer survivors, called Camp Bluebird, provides encouragement and education for survivors. The camp is open to all cancer survivors in Indiana and is supported by the IU Health Foundation.
