About Our Cancer Care
To face a cancer diagnosis takes equal parts courage and determination. You need an oncology team that is just as courageous and determined as you are. Our approach effectively treats cancer clinically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Our team employs valuable research and advanced technology in order to deliver excellent care at every level. We believe no solution is too complicated and no problem is too difficult.
Cancer can be a scary word, but treating it doesn't have to be a scary process. Each year, hundreds of patients are treated with the most advanced technologies by our team of highly skilled medical professionals. We treat more breast, lung and colon cancer patients than any other health system in the metro area. Our cancer treatment services include surgery, medical and radiation oncology, dedicated inpatient oncology units and a wide array of support services.
CHI Health Henry Lynch Cancer Centers have received a three-year Network Accreditation with Commendation from the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer (CoC). The CoC is a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients through standard setting, prevention, research, education and the monitoring of comprehensive quality care. Network Accreditation is a testament to the integration of cancer services and an assurance of one consistent standard of care governed by a single board of directors and a single cancer registry database that includes: Genetics, Clinical Trials, Counseling, Image Recovery and a Nurse Navigator program. This accreditation has been in place since 2007 and replaces the individual hospital accreditations that Bergan Mercy, Immanuel and Midlands hospitals have held in the past.
