Welcome to the 2015-2016
Sentara Cancer Network Annual Report
To our Patients, Colleagues and Community,
Every day in the fight against cancer, milestones are achieved–some are large and groundbreaking, while others are small but meaningful. Each success builds on the past. It’s the consistent improvements that add up and make a positive impact on the lives in our community – today and in the future.
The Sentara Cancer Network, with its proven track record of quality, advanced care, continues to achieve milestones in cancer treatment, thanks to the highly skilled physicians, experienced providers and innovative technology. Bringing together the best clinicians and the best technology produces the best results for those who entrust us with their care.
It is exciting to be part of the innovative team at Sentara – and at the forefront of cancer treatment. We are proud to serve people across Virginia and North Carolina and honored to work every day, sharing knowledge, conducting research and performing innovative treatments that improve cancer care in our communities.
This annual cancer report reflects how far we have come, growing in scope and depth, and supporting clinicians each year. It is a testament to our teams of skilled physicians who use advanced technology and leading-edge clinical trials to extend their reach constantly, helping to better understand cancer, detect it earlier and treat the disease more effectively. On behalf of our colleagues in the Sentara Cancer Network, we present our most recent quality data and an overview of our services in this report.
