Outcomes

The first system in Virginia to be accredited as a Network Cancer Program by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer, Sentara has a proven track record of quality, advanced care.

Medical advances continue to develop, helping physicians and specialists better understand cancer, detect it earlier and treat the disease more effectively.

The Sentara Cancer Network has been at the forefront of making these cancer advances available in Hampton Roads.

Highly skilled physicians and staff, advanced technology and treatments, and a focus on quality have resulted in accomplishments such as a compliance standard for 12-node sampling in colon cancer surgeries, reconstructive surgeries to improve the quality of life for head and neck cancer patients, and efforts for early outreach to women who are at the highest risk for breast cancer.
