Now, nearly fifty years later, the LOURDES Regional Cancer Center continues that mission. Since 1971, the Lourdes Regional Cancer Center has been accredited as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program. Most recently, Lourdes has been awarded the 2008 Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award by the Commission on Cancer American College of Surgeons. The Award is designed to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients. Lourdes is one of only 95 facilities in the US to receive this award.
Today, Lourdes is among the largest and most sophisticated community cancer centers in the country. Here within the region's premier facility dedicated to the fight against cancer we've gathered the area's top physicians and oncologists. We've assembled select teams of cancer nurses and specialists and we've brought to the Southern Tier some of the newest weapons to fight cancer.
Pastoral care, nutrition services, and rehabilitation services are also available for both outpatients and inpatients. Lourdes Regional Cancer Center also maintains a link with the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) database. This database provides the latest information on research advances and new treatments, as well as emerging topics on the influence of genetics, environmental factors and lifestyle factors in the development of cancer.

What is a cardiac catheterization, or angiogram?
This test is usually performed in patients with chest pain, shortness of breath, positive stress test, or people with suspected heart valve abnormalities. The procedure involves placement of a catheter in the groin and injection of contrast dye into the coronary arteries and heart itself. The physician can visualize blockages in the arteries or abnormalities of the heart muscle or valves on specialized X-ray equipment. The procedure usually takes around 15-30 minutes.
Who reviews the mammography image/results?
All mammography results are reviewed a minimum of two times. The first review is performed by one of our board certified radiologists. The second review is performed by the R2 ImageChecker. The R2 ImageChecker is a Computer Aided Detection (CAD) system that analyzes mammograms giving a computerized “second opinion.”
What is a screening mammogram?
A screening mammogram is a low dose x-ray of the breast. A mammogram consists of two images of each breast. The images are used to detect changes in the breasts of women who have no signs or symptoms suspicious for breast cancer. An annual screening mammogram is recommended for all women over the age of 40.
What is the Crystalens?
When a cataract is removed and replaced with a standard intraocular lens the cloudienss is eliminated, but there is no ability to accommodate and adjust focus for both distance and near vision. Therefore a person with a standard intraocular lens can regain clear vision but will usually need glasses at least for reading. The Crystalens is an intraocular lens that, unlike a standard intraocular lens is designed to recreate your accommodation and reduce or eliminate wearing glasses.
