Cancer Care

We are in the process of creating a Cancer program that will help patients navigate treatments, surgery and recovery.

Our program provides support from a variety of professionals:

  • Surgeons
  • Radiologists
  • Medical Oncologists
  • Nursing 
  • Nutrition
  • Support

We have a Tumor Board and participate in the Tumor Registry, which helps our patients have a better care plan for their unique needs.

Frequently Used Materials

  • Personal Health Manager (PHM) 
    These kits are located onsite and are distributed to patients diagnosed with cancer within the last 12 months. We utilize the general PHM and have a brochure sent to the patient's house specifically regarding their cancer diagnosis. This kit also contains materials that discuss what cancer is, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
