If you or someone close to you is facing a diagnosis of cancer, it’s important to focus all of your time and energy on beating the disease. With the comprehensive care available through Kennedy Health, you have the opportunity to concentrate on your health. That’s because from diagnosis through treatment, you can count on the latest advancements in technology and a highly skilled team of cancer specialists to provide seamless and effective care.
Our team of physicians include surgeons whose efforts are directed toward removing the tumor, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists who specialize in the treatment of cancer by providing treatments that can complement surgery or be used alone. In addition, radiologists and pathologists provide pivotal information to accurately diagnose the cancer and support the selection of the most effective treatment approach. While most patients never meet these physicians, their contributions to your care is significant.
A team of dedicated health care professionals with specialized expertise in cancer collaborate with our physicians and directly participate in your care. Among others, these include oncology certified nurses, registered radiation therapists, and an oncology social worker.
