The C.R. Wood Cancer Center
In 2017, the C.R. Wood Cancer Center debuted a new, state-of-the-art pharmacy. Made possible
by the support of generous donors, including the Charles R. Wood Foundation, the new pharmacy features a clean room work area that keeps employees safe while producing the chemicals and drugs necessary for patient treatments. Previously, chemotherapy drugs had been prepared in a small space, about the size of a kitchenette, originally built in 1993. “It is truly an honor to have a pharmacy where every patient in our community can entrust their lives and receive an exceptional experience with the best quality care,” said Nancy Huntington, Director, Pharmacy at Glens Falls Hospital.
The C.R. Wood Cancer Center provides interdisciplinary care on an outpatient basis, serving the young adult to geriatric population diagnosed with cancer and blood disorders. Services include screening, diagnosis, hematology and oncology treatment, genetic counseling,
clinical research, education, psychosocial support, rehabilitation, and survivorship care.
