Constantly focused on quality of care, the hospital’s cancer com- mittee leads the program through setting goals, monitoring and refi ning care, and evaluating patient outcomes.

The lines of communication are always open among all team members. Each member of a patient’s team brings his or her own unique expertise and experience to the table to consider the patient’s care from every angle that they can, to explore every option, every treatment, and every approach known to them.
