Your cancer care team

Our cancer care team is comprised of, but not limited to, expert physicians in the following specialties:

  • General surgery
  • Gynecologic oncology
  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Hematology/oncology
  • Radiation oncology

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 physical therapy 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.
