Patient-centered Care, Focused Expertise

Our cancer-specific care means your cancer care team is centered around you. You will be assigned your own team of multidisciplinary cancer specialists who focus only on your particular type of cancer.

This focused approach to cancer care is both individualized and integrated. Our oncology teams focus exclusively on your type of cancer. We bring all these highly specialized experts together to offer patients a comprehensive and collaborative multi-disciplinary care team, experts not just in cancer care, but in your specific type of cancer. Our physicians and experts from a variety of specialties work together in your best interests. That’s better cancer care.

Personalized Support Throughout the Entire Care Journey

We’re here for you throughout your entire cancer journey – from prevention to diagnosis to treatment and survivorship. Every patient is assigned a personal nurse navigator who serves as a single point of contact. Your navigator coordinates your care, answers any questions you may have, connects you with resources and so much more.

We know that the cancer journey is physically, mentally and emotionally taxing. We are committed to helping you navigate all aspects, not just clinical care. We offer a wide range of supportive services, including support groups, nutrition counseling, survivorship clinics and chaplaincy.

Diagnostic Testing, Advanced Treatment Options & Clinical Trials

We’ve invested in the latest technologies to bring better cancer care to the communities we serve. With our use of endoscopic technology, for example, we can diagnose and stage certain cancers earlier than ever before – when they’re at their most treatable stage. This shortens the time you spend waiting for answers, and gets your treatment started as quickly as possible.

Parkview is home to the region’s only CyberKnife®, an innovative outpatient treatment option for certain cancers. CyberKnife precisely and painlessly targets tumors with focused beams of radiation. Because of its accuracy, CyberKnife is able to save healthy tissue surrounding the tumor. This technology dramatically reduces procedure time for some patients – with no incisions or pain.

Our new Parkview Cancer Institute is also home to state-of-the-art infusion bays, which deliver infusion therapies like chemotherapy in a caring and comfortable environment, designed with your comfort in mind. Additional groundbreaking procedures and treatments include biotherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiation therapy and more.

In collaboration with Parkview Research Center, our patients may have the opportunity to participate in national and international clinical trials. To explore open clinical trials that may be a fit for your type of cancer, visit our available clinical trials directory.
