Compassionate Cancer Care Close to Home

Here at Sturdy, we offer a comprehensive Cancer Care Program that coordinates and provides care for all but the most uncommon cancers. As our patient, you will receive the same cancer treatment options and protocols that are found in major cancer centers. You'll have access to national clinical trials, chemotherapy, infusion therapy, surgery, state-of-the-art radiation therapy and cancer rehabilitation, all provided by highly trained and specialized doctors who are among leaders in their field. Your treatment is based on your medical needs.

Our Cancer Program is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (COC) and was most recently surveyed in 2016. The COC recognizes our commitment to providing high quality, patient centered care. Our high standards of care are maintained through four major components: Cancer Committee, Tumor Conference, Tumor Registry, and a Continuous Quality Improvement Program.

Supportive Care

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, we will connect you with a nurse navigator to provide guidance and comfort every step of the way. Your nurse navigator will help manage your care and reduce barriers to care so you can focus on healing. She will help streamline your appointments between your physicians and provide you with educational resources about your diagnosis. Should you need additional services such as financial assistance or social services, she will work to help you put them in place.
