At Baptist Cancer Network we know that the diagnosis and fight against cancer can be overwhelming. To help you during this difficult time, we can connect you and your family with the resources you need to cope with your disease.
At Baptist Cancer Network we understand the importance of relationship building with our patients and the community.

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it can be an overwhelming experience. That's why we have experienced cancer nurses and a specialized team of Oncology Nurse Navigators that help patients through the process. The Baptist Cancer Network has Patient Navigators to assist cancer patients in the transition from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.
Where Commitment and Caring Come Together
The Baptist Cancer Network redefines the
patient experience by combining knowledge and skills with the
support, compassion and spirituality that you deserve.

Our team consists of radiation oncologists and their clinical staff – physicists, dosimeterists, radiation therapists, and nurses who develop a treatment plan when radiation is determined to be an appropriate form of treatment.
SUSPICION OF CANCER
Oncologists review recent physician visit notes and test results to determine whether cancer may be the underlying cause of suspicious symptoms, and will determine if further testing is needing to find cancer at the earliest possible stage.
Cancer Network Highlights
