What to Expect During Cancer Treatment

The beginning of your cancer treatment may seem full of uncertainties. But at CHI Saint Joseph Health, we’re here to keep you informed, prepared and empowered, right from the start.

Your journey begins with your cancer care team, featuring highly skilled oncologists known as much for their compassionate, personalized care as their skill in fighting cancer. After creating a personalized treatment plan, they’ll communicate closely with you and your family at every step and help you make informed decisions about your care.

From the staff at the front desk, to our cancer specialists and support team, we’re here to make each of your visits as convenient and stress-free as possible. We help you take care of each detail, from managing medical records and insurance coverage, to coordinating appointments and travel arrangements and providing extra comfort and support.

Our highly personalized care is only matched by our technology—offering some of the most advanced treatments available in surgical, radiation and medical oncology. You also have access to cancer clinical trials, offering new options before they become available to the public.

We offer these services close to home at one of our full-service cancer centers, which means less stress and travel, and more focus on getting well.
