According to the American Cancer Society, there were an estimated 163,480
new cases of
cancer diagnosed in California for 2011 alone. In fact, cancer is one of the
leading causes of death for Americans next to heart attacks and stroke.
Fortunately, San Jose residents have access to one of the finest cancer
care hospitals in the nation.
Good Samaritan Hospital’s Cancer Care Center offers a number of comprehensive
services using only the most advanced, high-quality treatments and diagnostic
procedures available, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and support
services for both patients and families. Our experienced and dedicated
team of nurses, physicians, and cancer specialists provide quality, compassionate
care. We also hold weekly tumor board meetings attended by oncologists,
cancer surgeons, and a number of specialists to determine the best treatment
options for our patients.
In fact, Good Samaritan Hospital has been designated as a Comprehensive
Community Cancer Center by the American College of Surgeons Commission
on Cancer. Less than 25% of the hospitals in the nation hold this distinction,
making Good Samaritan a number one resource for cancer care. Our hospital
is also the proud recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award from
the American College of Surgeons—an award that has only been given
to 39 other hospitals across the country. As a member of the Association
of Community Cancer Centers, we meet all ACCC standards in cancer treatments
and strive to provide the highest quality of care in an environment that
supports the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our patients.
