About this company
Southern Cancer Center, P.C. was founded in 2007 as a group of physicians who wanted to provide care for oncology patients in Mobile and Baldwin counties. The group became independent practitioners instead of hospital based in order to better meet the needs of what our patients were telling us they wanted. Originally we had offices at Providence, on Dauphin Street, and a small office in Spanish Fort. Since that time, we have built and opened a large cancer center in Daphne, Alabama named after our Founder, Dr. Michael W. Meshad, President of Southern Cancer Center. This center is the only full service cancer center in Baldwin county that provides both medical and radiation oncology under one roof. Also in Baldwin County, we have offices in Foley and on the campus of Thomas Hospital. We have offices on campus at Providence Hospital, Springhill Medical Center, and Mobile Infirmary in Mobile County. The physicians wanted to be located and support the communities where our patients are from, not have patients ! The entire staff is excellent! They are all compassionate and professional. Everyone made me feel comfortable, answered my questions, and are always friendly, cheerful, and positive! In June of 2007, the practice also adopted an electronic medical record system. Over the last seven years, we have enjoyed and endured all the benefits and challenges this technology has brought to the medical field. Southern Cancer Center, as an entity, and all of our physicians attested to Medicare and were successful in meeting the "meaningful use" requirements. This was a huge accomplishment for this practice. By 2014, this will be a requirement for all medical practices. To better serve our patients, we also implemented a patient portal in partnership with Navigating Cancer. This allows our patients to have personal access to pertinent information in their medical records as well as provide them with the most current educational information specific to their disease. Safety of our patients is very important to our practice. We have the latest pharmacy mixing hoods called MIC's Mobile Isolation Chamber which protect our employees, our patients and our environment. We enforce a triple check process for chemotherapy dose calculation and administration. Southern Cancer Center has a well-trained and dedicated staff. Our chemotherapy infusion nurses are either ONS certified and/or preparing for certification. We were the ONLY cancer site in Alabama recognized for having at least 75% of our nurses certified. The employees of SCC practice the team approach to taking care of patients. We understand the it takes each of us to meet all of the needs of oncology patients.
