A Big Picture Approach to Cancer Care

It takes a team to meet every patient’s needs. At CHA, your entire care team—primary care, social work, surgeons, oncologists and others—works together on your treatment plan. Having everyone on the same page gives you better care.

We also understand that people with cancer face challenges that can make their situation even worse. At CHA, you won’t be alone. Your care team will connect you with resources and support at CHA and in your community.

Cancer Care How You Need It

There are more options for treating cancer than ever before. That’s why, in addition to providing surgery, chemotherapy and other services at CHA, we work closely with our partner hospitals for complex care. Our goal is to get you the right treatment for your cancer, based on your specific needs.

Some patients may benefit from molecularly targeted therapies, hormone therapy or immunotherapy. Others need radiation or a specific procedure or protocol. Regardless of where your treatment occurs, your CHA primary care provider and oncologist will still be part of your core care team - with you every step of the way.
