One of our major strengths is that we are a cancer center that meets weekly and collectively with social workers, dieticians, radiation therapists, our medical oncology and radiation oncology colleagues and nursing staff. We meet to discuss every patient on therapy and we discuss problems such as medical, social and other issues. Additionally, we have specialized tumor boards for breast, lung and general cancers. Tumor board members include radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, hematologists, surgeons, pathologists and radiologist. We review cases, films, pathology and develop a general treatment consensus.
With our unique peer review process, we can guarantee the highest level of care and the best possible outcome. These multi-disciplinary teams are rarely found elsewhere. We know collaborative review and a team approach to cancer treatment is vital to ensuring that nothing goes unnoticed.
The integration within the Cancer Center and the commitment of each member of our team to the success of treatment and to the quality of this program is unequalled anywhere in the region. Our medical professionals chat informally with patients and family members, coordinate busy schedules and share between and among themselves on a daily basis. Everyone here enjoys knowing that everyone is on the same page, every step of the way.
