Our El Camino Hospital Cancer Center is structured to give our patients the attention, compassion, and top-notch care they deserve, in an environment that brings together some of the best medical minds in the country. In the interest of our patients, the hospital as a whole has taken significant measures to make sure medical bureaucracy doesn’t get in the way of medical treatment. You’ll find our Cancer Center is truly a “one-stop shop,” with streamlined scheduling that spares you the hassle of numerous phone calls from one department to another. We even have an award-winning cancer concierge to assist patients with the treatment process — from first diagnosis all the way through follow-up care. Here are just a few of the things that set us apart:
Involved and Caring Specialists
The Cancer Center has brought together a team of physicians chosen for their superior educational background, specialty training, proven expertise and caring bedside manner. Our doctors understand the physical, mental and emotional stresses of living with cancer. They treat patients with the respect and compassion they deserve, and help them make informed treatment decisions that are best for them as individuals. Learn more.
We hold weekly multidisciplinary conferences, known as Tumor Boards, in which over 20 medical specialists get together to review patient cases and discuss potential treatment plans. Our Cancer Center is the first West Coast hospital to offer real-time, high-definition tumor board teleconferencing so our team can share radiology and lab reports, or discuss challenging or unusual cases remotely with other cancer experts in the region. This means our patients get the benefit of multiple expert opinions.
Access to New Treatments
As “the hospital of the Silicon Valley,” we make a point of staying on the leading edge of technological innovation, from CyberKnife® to the da Vinci® Surgical System. As part of our commitment to innovation, we offer our patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials, usually only available in large academic hospitals. Learn more.
