Clinic at-a-glance:

Providence Cancer Institute was an early adopter of multidisciplinary care concepts and recognized for ground-breaking clinical care that addresses mind and spirit in addition to the body in order to maximize treatment results and quality of life. In conjunction with this, the center offers a healing arts program that encompasses yoga, massage, Tai Chi, and nutrition, and provides dedicated oncology social workers responsible for delivering high-level psychosocial support. The institute relies on teams of nurse navigators to coordinate all services for patients, including pain management. It maintains a cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers and treatment results.
