Regional Cancer Center: An Inside Look Annual Report 2018-2019
A Multidisciplinary Approach through Mary Washington Healthcare
Mary Washington Healthcare's exceptional cancer care program takes
a holistic approach to our patients’ care, meaning that we make
sure our patients benefit from a strong support group, friendly and encouraging
staff, and convenient locations. Everything patients need is in one place,
meaning less travel time, less stress, and more time at home. We use the
latest technology and strive to raise the clinical profile of cancer programs.
One of the things patients appreciate about our cancer care is our multidisciplinary
approach. We hold regular meetings with oncologists, surgeons, radiologists,
and other pertinent medical staff to discuss our patients’ cases,
their treatments, and make adjustments for their future plan of care.
This approach ensures that we benefit from the collaboration of experience
and knowledge to come up with a plan of care that is best for our patient.
You are family
As a patient, we consider you and your family, our family. Whether you
have a traditional family or your loved ones are made up of non-relatives,
we provide important emotional support so that they may cope with the
impact cancer has on loved ones. This includes spouses, children, parents,
life partners and significant others, and close friends. We even have
a special program so that the family pet can visit during a hospital stay.
Chemotherapy & Other Infusions
We provide comfortable, spacious areas where patients go to receive chemotherapy
or other necessary infusions. Our patients benefit from one-on-one care,
refreshments, television, comfortable chairs, and optional, complementary
therapies! We strive to make these hospital visits as comfortable and
relaxing as possible for our patients
