• Sophia Gordon Cancer Center

    The Lahey Medical Center, Peabody, is one of the locations of Lahey’s renowned Sophia Gordon Cancer Center. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality cancer care in a compassionate, safe and patient-centered environment.

    Our treatment philosophy is rooted in teamwork, ease of access and patient empowerment. Recognizing that each patient’s oncology needs are unique, we offer a full range of treatment options for our patients to choose from.

    Every patient is encouraged to review all options with our medical team, and is an important part of the decision-making process. Once a cancer treatment has been chosen, the team then develops a plan that is best-suited to the individual’s needs, allowing the patient to weigh in on preferences and priorities.

    Embracing a team approach to cancer care, involving the patient every step of the way, allows us to pave the way for superior outcomes, increased patient satisfaction and, most important of all, a higher rate of cancer survivorship.

    Lahey Medical Center, Peabody, is located at One Essex Center Drive in Peabody, Massachusetts, just north of Boston.

    Our physicians, nurses, nutritionists, therapists and other caregivers have undergone rigorous rehabilitation training by oncology experts. The focus is on relieving treatment-related symptoms such as pain, weakness, fatigue, memory and concentration issues, lymphedema, balance and gait problems, and more. We also collaborate with other community providers to offer survivorship support.
