A cancer diagnosis can shake you. But when patients are ready to fight, there is one key question: What happens now?

The Adena Cancer Center state-of-the-art facility was designed to provide the answers to that question all in one place—and as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Multidisciplinary Care

Depending on the type of cancer and how advanced it is, there may be various appropriate treatment approaches. Patient’s cases are then discussed at a weekly tumor board. These cancer-specific boards—one for breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and head and neck cancer—are made up of oncologists, surgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners patient, navigators, pathologists and radiologists, who collaborate to discuss the best course of action for that particular patient. The tumor boards are scheduled to meet twice weekly.

After our team of physicians meets with the patient, they assemble in a breast cancer conference to review the patient's medical history, family history, biopsy  and mammogram results, and any other patient pathology, laboratory or imaging results. The Team will recommend the best options for cancer treatment and the medical oncologists will meet eht patient to discuss their personalized care plan. Once the final careplan is selected the Nurse Navigor will coordinate appointments for the patient to begin treatment. 

Advanced Cancer Treatment Options

Certified by the American College of Surgeons, the Adena Cancer Center provides advanced care, including chemotherapy medications and radiation to shrink and destroy tumors and surgical options to remove cancer. Adena also is using the latest immunotherapy  that help the patient’s natural immune system fight the cancer. Plus, ongoing clinical trials offer patients access to the newest innovative cancer therapies.

Keeping track of appointments and understanding the treatment process can be overwhelming. Adena’s patient navigators are here to help patients and their families and caregivers manage treatment, answering questions and connecting them to valuable resources along the way.
