Cancer Care Services
We understand that living with cancer is never easy. When someone receives a cancer diagnosis, it is important to be able to access quality physicians and services near home.
With convenience and comfort in mind, The Bellevue Hospital (TBH), in collaboration with NOMS Healthcare, now offers cancer care services for Bellevue residents and the surrounding areas at TBH’s 1400 W. Main Street facility in Bellevue.
Our dedicated care team is here to provide the most advanced, patient-specific treatment needed to help patients navigate through the challenges of a cancer diagnosis without traveling to a larger city for care.
Housed conveniently on TBH’s first floor, our Cancer Care Services include a physician-run hematology/oncology clinic, which is currently scheduled for Thursday mornings and led by NOMS Healthcare oncologists James Fanning, M.D. and Timothy Adomowicz, D.O.
Dr. Fanning has been serving the area as a board certified medical oncologist since 1998. He earned his undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University and his medical degree from The Ohio State University College of Medicine and Public Health. He completed an internship and his residency in internal medicine at Ohio State. He also received his medical oncology/hematology fellowship at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Adamowicz has been serving the area as a board certified medical oncologist since 2013. He received his bachelor of science degree at Penn State University and his medical degree at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Erie, Pa. He then completed his internal medicine residency at Hahnemann University Hospital/Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, followed by a medical oncology fellowship at the University of Nevada School of Medicine in Las Vegas, Nev.
TBH’s skilled staff also provides services such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy, a treatment that uses a person’s own immune system to fight cancer.
