Cancer Care

We are here to help you find what you need.
Good Samaritan’s multidisciplinary team offers a high level of clinical expertise in preventing, diagnosing and treating all types of cancer, and treats our patients and families with compassion and care from diagnosis through treatment to recovery.

Our cancer program gives patients access to some of the area’s leading board-certified medical and radiation oncologists, as well as highly skilled radiologists, surgeons, pathologists, nurses, therapists, dietitians, social workers, and other professional support staff dedicated to treating cancer patients. Our services are available on-site and in cooperation with other area facilities.

Good Samaritan’s Comprehensive Cancer Program has been recognized with consecutive (2011 and 2014) Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Awards.

Did you know that our Oncology Center has a nurse navigator that is available to guide patients through an oncology diagnosis process?

The oncology nurse navigator is a registered oncology nurse dedicated to coordinate the clinical, educational and supportive needs of patients who are facing the possibility of a cancer diagnosis. The oncology nurse navigator can help patients and their loved ones navigate along the way by:

  • Guidance through the diagnostic imaging process
  • Directing additional health care services for further diagnosis and treatment
  • Answering questions or help find the answers patients may require
  • If necessary, coordinate care among various physicians, for example, a surgeon, medical oncologist or radiation oncologist
  • Connecting patients with additional support services, including local services, social work, counseling or financial resources

    Should you be screened for Lung Cancer? Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., with more people dying of lung cancer than breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. This potential life saving screening may be right for you if you are a current smoker or have quit smoking within the past 15 years; have a smoking history of 30+ pack years; and are between the ages of 55 – 77. Speak with your PCP to find out if you are a candidate and discuss your options. Good Samaritan Medical Center has received accreditation from the American College of Radiology in Computed Tomography and is designated as an ACR Lung Cancer Screening Center. Low Dose Computed Tomography (LDCT) screens patients at high-risk for lung cancer prior to becoming symptomatic.
