No matter where you are in your cancer journey, CHI Franciscan Cancer Care is here to help you beat cancer. We’re proud to be among the top cancer programs in the country accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, adhering to the highest standards of patient care and outcomes. We’re one of the largest cancer care providers in the Puget Sound, treating thousands of patients annually.
You’re part of the team
Not only are you a part of the team, you’re the most important member. Here you’ll partner with your doctor who is part of a multidisciplinary care team to share in the decisions about your treatment. We offer the largest patient navigation program in the Puget Sound, providing you with a consistent point of contact who can help you access all the resources you need, answer questions and listen to your concerns.
As a team, all of the specialists involved in your care will bring a unique expertise to your care to create a personalized treatment plan for your specific cancer. As an example of our team approach and commitment to quality, cancer physicians meet at weekly Cancer Conferences (Tumor Boards) to review and collaborate on recently diagnosed cases. They discuss what additional diagnostic studies might be beneficial, the available treatment options and if clinical trials or studies are currently open that might benefit the patient.
