Spotlight: Grand Valley Oncology
Grand Junction, Colorado
Grand Valley Oncology, a freestanding cancer care facility wholly owned by Community Hospital, provides full spectrum outpatient medical and radiation oncology services as well as robust survivorship and integrative therapies programs. Through its affiliation with the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, the cancer center is able to offer state-of-the-art clinical trials to this geographically disparate population.
Spotlight: James M. Stockman Cancer Institute
The James M. Stockman Cancer Institute, located in a newly constructed 62,000 square-foot building in the heart of Frederick County, is not a typical cancer care facility. From the exterior, it looks like an upscale three-story office building. Inside, however, is the calm and warmth that characterizes the type of care patients receive there. The Stockman Cancer Institute is a member of the MD Anderson Cancer Network. Through this affiliation, the cancer center has access to the latest clinical algorithms and protocols, educational materials, and research. MD Anderson Cancer Network members have been certified in excellence for cancer care, and 16 physicians at Stockman Cancer Institute are certified by the network.
Spotlight: Georgetown Cancer Center
In August of 2009, Georgetown Cancer Center became a Commission on Cancer–accredited program, expanding its outreach and screening services further into the community. The cancer center, which is conveniently situated inside the 75-bed hospital, offers medical oncology services, including chemotherapy and infusion services (six treatment chairs and one treatment room), as well as pharmacy, rehabilitation, and laboratory services. Currently, the cancer center is staffed by one medical oncologist, five nurses, three PRN (per diem) nurses, and a full-time nurse navigator.
