Navigation Care Team
If you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, you may feel alone and overwhelmed by the level of information you receive and the decisions you have to make. We aim to ease your burden with care navigators who can help you make sense of your options and guide you through your care.
Survivorship Care Program
At the John A. DeQuattro Cancer Center, we strongly believe support should continue after your treatment ends. We invite all patients to be a part of our complimentary Survivorship Program that promotes activities that reduce the late effects of cancer treatment.
Clinical trials are research studies that see whether a certain medication, treatment, device or strategy is safe and effective for humans. Clinical trials also help determine which treatments work best for certain illnesses and certain groups of people, including people with cancer. ECHN regularly participates in clinical trials for emerging cancer treatments so that patients can access the most up-to-date technology and treatments if they choose to participate.
