Why Choose Us For Cancer Care?
More than 50 years of success
St. Vincent's HealthCare (SVHC) operates one of the nation's oldest cancer care programs, with more than 50 years of continual accreditation by the American College of Surgeons as a "Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program."
St. Vincent's Mary Virginia Terry Cancer Center's participation in ongoing clinical trials allows many patients to receive tomorrow's gold standard of care years before it becomes widely available elsewhere.
Convenience & Collaboration
Multidisciplinary Breast Clinic
Our multidisciplinary breast clinic brings together all the various breast cancer related specialties in one location in order to eliminate the stressful period when facing a potential diagnosis.
When a woman suspects or learns she has breast cancer, she can come to our clinic and see a number of specialists in a matter of hours, rather than weeks or months. This allows patients to get answers to all their questions in one day and go home with both a diagnosis and a definitive treatment plan.
Professionals Working Together
Collaboration is the hallark of the SVHC cancer program. Dedicated specialists work together to diagnose and plan treatments for patients through a unique prospective clinical process that provides patients with the benefit of a thorough, thoughtful therapy recommendation. Information regarding patients diagnosed and treated at SVHC is entered into the Cancer Registry database and followed throughout the patient's lifetime. Physicians and administrators use this information to monitor our cancer care and to ensure continued quality of care.
