The Karmanos Cancer Institute Inpatient Oncology Unit at McLaren Oakland

McLaren Oakland recently opened a new inpatient oncology unit. Oakland County residents will benefit from the latest advances in cancer care treatments and receive greater access to advanced clinical trials and cancer treatment programs close to home.

Cancer Resource Fund

During cancer treatment, income may change, leaving the survivor and their families unable to pay for everyday needs, like rent/mortgage, car insurance/maintenance, or utility bills. The Cancer Resource Fund is used to pay for non-medical bills for patients who are undergoing cancer treatment through the Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Oakland, Clarkston or Bloomfield.

Breast Cancer Screenings and Patient Care

We want to increase awareness of breast cancer and provide Karmanos/McLaren Oakland patients in Oakland County with mammograms at no cost to them. Over the past 8 years, the McLaren Oakland Foundation provided more than 4,000 free mammograms to uninsured and under-insured women.

State-of-the-art Facilities and Technology

As a Verified Level 2 Trauma Center, McLaren Oakland is equipped to meet the needs of those traumatically injured in Oakland County.

With this level of care, it's important to keep McLaren Oakland's Emergency Department up-to-date. This is possible thanks to donations made to the McLaren Oakland Foundation. Emergency room use has increased over the last few years by 20% as patients and visitors consistently commend the McLaren Oakland Emergency Department for outstanding clinical care and personal attention. The McLaren Oakland Foundation continues to raise funds for the Emergency Department in order to meet current and future demands.

Free Mammogram Program

The McLaren Oakland Foundation's free mammogram program promotes breast cancer awareness while providing mammogram screenings for uninsured, at-risk or low-income women in Oakland County.
