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 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

Sentara Cancer Network has the unique skill, experience, technology and national accreditation to care for complex cancer patients.  The Sentara EVMS Comprehensive Head and Neck Center is a pillar of the Sentara Cancer Network. Our multidisciplinary head and neck team are uniquely fellowship-trained to care for this specific patient population.

Research shows that high volume centers have better patient outcomes. Our Center diagnoses and treats approximately 300 new patients each year. Even with such high volume, our team reviews every patient’s case at the weekly Head and Neck multidisciplinary tumor conference, the only conference of its kind in the region.  This collaboration among providers from varying disciplines ensures the best treatment plan for each patient.
