Cancer is a personal and complex experience. That’s why Memorial forms a comprehensive care team with you at the center. Physicians, nurses, and support specialists all collaborate to give you the best of their collective experience and expertise. Your team meets regularly before, during and after treatment to ensure all your needs are met. The result is care that is skilled, warm and comforting.
An individual cancer diagnosis can be far reaching. It may require multiple treatment paths: surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination. Beyond the clinical treatments, you may require nutrition therapy, plastic surgery or physical pulmonary rehabilitation. You and your family may want help with the emotional or spiritual aspects of confronting cancer. Or you may have questions about insurance and financial arrangements. At Memorial, we work to ensure all of your needs are met. We not only care for you, we care about you — it’s a difference our patients feel every day.
Tumor conferences are central to Memorial’s approach to care. These weekly conferences bring together doctors from multiple specialties to review current cases, share information and determine treatment options. A nurse navigator is always present to ensure that your voice is always heard. It is teamwork at its best.
