Comprehensive Cancer Center: Where hope lives 

A cancer diagnosis is life-changing. But, for many, it's no longer a terminal illness. It is, however, the beginning of a challenging journey.

We can help you navigate the expected and the unexpected. We offer treatment through surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, as well as unique, personalized support:

  • An oncology nurse educator, working with patients one-on-one
  • A social worker to help guide patients and families through the healthcare system and provide emotional support and financial guidance
  • A survivorship class series, covering nutrition, stress, exercise, and more
  • Support groups and classes

Cancer Center quality

Cancer programs use a lot of adjectives to describe themselves and the work they do. But are the words supported by meaningful, independent measurements that can be compared against other programs? Ours are.

The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer is the credentialing organization for our cancer program.  It collects data from cancer-care programs, assessing whether and how they follow established standards of care for major cancers. The information is available on the internet, and enables the public to compare individual programs to each other and to regional, state, and national results.
