Your Cancer Care Team
As cancer care becomes more specialized, patients and their families work with a team throughout the treatment process. Each team brings together professionals with experience and expertise in a range of disciplines - medicine, nursing, social work, psychology, pastoral counseling, pharmacology, nutrition and rehabilitation. The oncology nursing staff is made up of highly skilled and trained nurses whose specialized nursing skills, along with a genuine concern for each patient, translate into superior care.
The team's collaboration strengthens the individual treatment plan, encourages patient involvement, and ensures a continuous flow of communication. This underlying spirit of cooperation fosters a climate of trust and concern that is conducive to healing.
And through our partnership with Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Johnston-Willis Hospital, we can offer our patients advanced treatment plans throughout the care continuum.
