You may have heard from your friends or neighbors, that if you receive a cancer diagnosis, you should go to Goshen. That is because Goshen Center for Cancer Care is different. Our approach to treating cancer is different.
As a Goshen patient, you will have an entire team of health care providers, not just one oncologist. We believe that to give you the best possible chance of defeating cancer, you need a whole team on your side.
We provide integrative, multi-disciplinary care which includes surgical, medical, radiology and naturopathic doctors, all working together for you and your family. We believe your whole person deserves the best and that is why you are provided naturopathic doctors, dietitians and counselors at no cost throughout your treatment and into survivorship.
Our survivor network coordinator is available to help you through your entire journey, connecting you to resources to make your path a little better. Survivor buddies are available for encouragement and support. A supplement fund is available for low income patients unable to purchase the recommended neutraceuticals. Our care coordinator is available to help patients locate pharmaceutical and foundation assistance for expensive chemotherapy drugs.
Your Goshen health care team communicates with each other, including weekly meetings where all the providers are updated on your progress and needs. We believe our approach results in the best patient care available.
In addition to our approach, we have some of the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technology available including TomoTherapy, PET/CT imaging and dose verification system (DVS). As much as we believe in the expertise of our caregivers, we also know that placing the latest tools and technology in their hands is imperative to providing you with the very best care.
Groundbreaking research is also an important part of what we offer our patients. Dr. Roderich Schwarz, medical director, sets the clinical vision and continues his research at the Harper Cancer Research Institute at Notre Dame. Our research – clinical trial department is supervised by Dr. Alexander Starodub, PhD. This department consists of seven full time Colleagues managing 40 clinical trials. Our involvement with national research-based organizations allows us the opportunity to be active in many clinical trials, enabling you to benefit from the very latest cancer treatments.
At Goshen Center for Cancer Care, we have the strength it takes to help you walk the path called cancer. If you are a patient and would like a second opinion or have been told you should see an oncologist, call (574) 364-2973 to speak with one of our information specialists. Come and experience why people say “Go to Goshen.”
