Northwest Regional Cancer Center

As of February 1, 2016, Northwest Medical Center acquired Northwest Regional Cancer Center.  The center is operating as a department of the hospital, a move that will allow the hospital to provide enhanced cancer care services throughout northwest Alabama.   

Northwest Regional Cancer Center offers high quality services with professional, courteous staff including Radiation Oncologist Shelby P. Sanford, M.D. and Medical Oncologists Dmitriy Zak, M.D. and Laura Bunch, M.D. The center offers radiation oncology services with plans to add chemotherapy services in 2016. Adding chemotherapy services will allow Northwest Medical Center to offer more comprehensive oncology services at a convenient location for patients.  

Northwest Medical Center’s acquisition of the cancer center offers significant benefits to patients and doctors.  Bringing these services under the umbrella of the hospital expands the serviced offered by the hospital, improves coordination of the service with the hospital, and maintains the quality group of oncologists that have been associated with the center for many years. Additionally, it allows for more cancer treatment options to our community without the need to travel a great distance.  For additional information, please call (205) 487-4405 or (888) 487-2061.
