St. John’s Riverside Hospital Oncology Department offers leading screening tests that are focused on early detection. Getting screening tests regularly may find breast, cervical, and colorectal (colon) cancers early when treatment is likely to work best. The Cancer Care program provides a comprehensive plan that treats both the medical and psychosocial needs of our patients. We strive to enhance the overall patient experience and optimize outcomes.
Being diagnosed with cancer is an overwhelming process. The St. John’s Riverside Hospital Cancer Team will help you learn about your disease process, choose a treatment plan, and help manage side effects that may be associated with your treatment.
To benefit our oncology patients, St. John’s Riverside Hospital provides the services of a Patient Navigator. Your navigator serves as a proactive guide to help you “navigate” all available necessary information from the professional and supportive staff as well as community resources that will make the journey to recovery more understandable and positive. They also assist in obtaining medical records from other facilities, as well as making timely appointments for your tests and physical exams.
