Treating you and other people with cancer in our community isn’t just our job, it's our passion. Our doctors and staff are inspired everyday by the strength of people who refuse to let a cancer diagnosis define them. Their stories motivate our caregivers to provide unwavering compassionate, innovative care.
Our care philosophy in one word? Multidisciplinary.
Thanks to this innovative approach to cancer care, you’re not alone in your fight. You benefit from the collective wisdom and experience of a multidisciplinary team of medical experts who offer unique perspectives and timely access to care.
What is a multidisciplinary cancer team? A multidisciplinary team approach is a collaboration between several types of doctors and other health care professionals who work to effectively diagnose and treat every aspect of your cancer recovery. Your team may include any number of oncologists, hematologists, pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, nurses, therapists, nurse navigators, dietitians, psychologists, and social workers.
What are the benefits of working with a multidisciplinary team? Accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment options given in a timely manner is essential to your survivorship. Teamwork and collaboration on your behalf are crucial to ensure every aspect of your diagnosis and treatment are considered. Your multidisciplinary team will coordinate a single, comprehensive care plan.
