Quality Data

Every person reacts to the news that they have cancer differently: Be assured that there is no right or wrong way to feel. When you are ready, you will find that the people and technology that make up the Sentara Cancer Network are ideal resources for you.

Someone to talk to
The first person you may want to talk with is a Sentara Patient Navigator. This nurse can locate a support group, review treatment options, including research trials, and discuss the care you’ll need before and after.

Someone to trust
 Physicians and staff from many areas of healthcare are part of the cancer care team, offering the highest quality care and support through the entire treatment process. The multi-disciplinary team approach reassures patients that their care is being reviewed by several different experts.

Watch a video about our collaborative approach to care:

Because of the number of patients that we help, our staff members are experts, similar in many ways to people who work in high-volume, large academic medical centers. Their expertise means that our patients can sometimes surpass the national survival rates reported by the National Cancer Data Base.

The Sentara Cancer Network specialists, from surgeons and radiologists to genetic counselors and oncology certified nurses, work together in teams. They share information about individual cases, gather innovative recommendations for care and ensure all options are considered. Instead of just one doctor, you will have a handful of health professionals working to make you well again.

Our team approach and our desire to carefully execute national breast cancer treatment guidelines are part of the reason why we’ve been recognized by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. This honor places us amongst the best cancer treatment networks in the nation.

Somewhere nearby for care
The Sentara Care Network offers patients a mobile unit and 15 sites in southeastern Virginia for mammograms, including six Comprehensive Breast Centers, accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. Wherever your home is located, you will find a facility close to you.

Care that will comfort you
The American Cancer Society presented the Hospital Patient Services Award to the Sentara Care Network for outstanding support to core programs. Several of our facilities have won awards for exemplary patient services and support. These awards mean that our patients can be sure that the staff goes above and beyond to anticipate and meet their needs.
