Spotlight: James M. Stockman Cancer Institute
The James M. Stockman Cancer Institute, located in a newly constructed 62,000 square-foot building in the heart of Frederick County, is not a typical cancer care facility. From the exterior, it looks like an upscale three-story office building. Inside, however, is the calm and warmth that characterizes the type of care patients receive there. The Stockman Cancer Institute is a member of the MD Anderson Cancer Network. Through this affiliation, the cancer center has access to the latest clinical algorithms and protocols, educational materials, and research. MD Anderson Cancer Network members have been certified in excellence for cancer care, and 16 physicians at Stockman Cancer Institute are certified by the network.
