Outcomes

The Sentara Cancer Network is the first system in Virginia to be accredited as a Network Cancer Program by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer. Sentara earned this certification with its proven track record of quality, advanced care. Medical advances help physicians and specialists better understand cancer, to detect it earlier and to treat the disease more effectively. The Sentara Cancer Network has been at the forefront of making these cancer advances available in Hampton Roads.

Quality Data

At Sentara, we recognize the importance of collaborative efforts of highly qualified physician specialists who are committed to sharing knowledge, using advanced technology and conducting innovative research. Within the Sentara Cancer Network, the focus of a multidisciplinary head and neck cancer team is to achieve and maintain excellent clinical outcomes, provide access to innovative national clinical trials and educate clinical providers on head and neck cancer care and management.

These dedicated subspecialists meet weekly in a multidisciplinary cancer conference to discuss all head and neck cancer cases, review eligibility for clinical trials and recommend appropriate courses of treatment.
