If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, we’re here to help. Our cancer team extends across the Front Range to bring you the most advanced treatments and compassionate care.
Our board-certified doctors and staff work to meet individual health care needs and make the cancer journey as comfortable as possible. Our goal is to help eliminate worry so that you can concentrate on getting well.
Nurse navigators offer special support.
Cancer treatment at Memorial Hospital extends beyond medical diagnoses and treatment – our unique nurse navigator program pairs each new oncology patient with a specially trained nurse who can provide support from the point of diagnosis through survivorship. Navigators embrace the patient, helping them to understand the diagnosis and making prompt access to care as seamless as possible.
Memorial’s nurse navigator program is unique in that its navigators are all certified oncology nurses. Our navigators have the clinical expertise to care for patients who are diagnosed with cancer. Nurse navigators also specialize in particular cancer diagnoses, so they are highly knowledgeable in the unique and complex challenges associated with the disease. Our nurse navigation teams specialize in breast, thoracic and gastrointestinal (GI) cancers.
Whether your medical plan includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or a combination of other support services, our clinic is prepared to be a compassionate partner in your journey.
