Due to the recent surge of COVID-19, please see our updated visitation policy below.

  1. Please note that we will only be allowing 1 visitor to accompany a patient who is seeing the physician that day. 
  2. Please also note that visitors will not be permitted to remain with patients during chemotherapy unless it is the patient’s first day of chemotherapy.
  3. No children under the age of 10 will be permitted in the facility. 

We know and understand that these are tough times for everyone.  Our first priority is and will continue to be the safety of our patients.  Thank you for your understanding.

SC Oncology will require facemasks to be worn by all persons entering the facility and will require masks to remain on while inside the building. This is in accordance with the City of Columbia ordinance requiring facemasks to be worn inside all private businesses beginning Friday, June 26, 2020.

We will provide facemasks for those who do not have one.  Due to the limited supplies of some distributors, we ask that you bring your own facemask.
