Cancer Care at CHWC
Bryan Hospital and the local medical community offer the latest in diagnostic and treatment options as well as top quality, comprehensive patient care.
Cancer care is a team effort at Bryan Hospital, from board-certified surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and oncology-certified nurses to social workers, pharmacists, dietitians and therapists. We also participate in a national cancer registry.
Our team meets frequently to discuss care and treatment options, pooling knowledge from their various fields of expertise to provide the best possible treatment to every patient. Additionally, our navigators assist with education, referral, care coordination and communication between patients and providers to help overcome barriers and to facilitate timely access to quality health and psychosocial care.
