Bone Marrow Biopsy

A bone marrow biopsy removes a small amount of bone, and a small amount of fluid and cells from inside the bone, to find the reason for many blood disorders. It may be used to find out if cancer or infection has spread to the bone marrow.

Chaplain Services

The chaplains of Lawrence Memorial Hospital tend to the spiritual needs of our patients and caregivers. At LMH, a full-time, interfaith chaplain is on duty throughout the week, and on-call chaplains are available evenings and weekends.

Medical Oncology

Medical oncology focuses on treating and managing solid tumors with chemotherapy, immunotherapy and/or targeted therapy, often involving a coordinated approach with radiation oncologists and surgeons.


Hematology focuses on treating and managing blood diseases. Our board-certified hematologists treat a variety of bleeding and clotting abnormalities, disorders of abnormal blood counts, and blood cancers such as leukemia.

Genetic Testing and Counseling

The cancer risk assessment program at LMH Oncology Center is designed to identify and inform patients at increased risk for cancer due to hereditary factors.

Growth Factor Support

Because anti-cancer drugs can interfere with the body's ability to make blood cells, some patients benefit from colony-stimulating factors. CSFs stimulate the production and maturation of white and red blood cells.

Lymphedema Management

Lymphedema is fluid build-up that causes swelling. It is often caused by radiation therapy or lymph node removal. Qualified lymphedema specialists at LMH provide treatment and help patients manage lymphedema.

Nutrition and Dietary Support

Side effects from cancer treatment can cause weight loss and nutrient deficiencies, which weaken the body's ability to fight cancer. A registered dietitian is available at LMH Oncology Center to help our patients with nutritional health management throughout treatment.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy delivers radiation to precise, targeted locations, a necessary treatment for many cancers. For our patients, radiation oncology services are provided next door at Lawrence Cancer Center.

Social Work and Support

Licensed, compassionate social workers at LMH Oncology Center are experts at helping patients and families cope with cancer and overcome emotional and financial barriers during treatment. 

Phlebotomy and Blood Transfusion

Phlebotomy is a procedure that removes iron-rich blood cells when excessive iron levels threaten serious organ and tissue damage. A blood transfusion is a medical treatment that replaces blood lost through injury, surgery or disease. Learn more about phlebotomy and blood transfusions.

Tumor Conferences

Our board-certified oncologists participate in tumor conferences to collaboratively discuss cases and get simultaneous input from physicians across multiple specialties. The tumor conference setting brings together several expert opinions and facilitates a coordinated care plan.

For appointments and information, call 785-505-2800.

"Take the time to ask the questions you need and also try to have a support system in place to kind of help you through this time. I think this is probably one of the more important aspects of care for cancer patients."

"I have the extra time to spend with the families. The family is our 'eyes' at home and we use those families at home to help us care for their loved ones."
