Comprehensive Cancer Care Services

We have a network of medical experts and support services to help you understand your diagnosis, make informed choices about your treatment options, and identify your goals of care to create a personal care plan that will promote the best possible outcomes.

We work closely with our academic affiliate, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), to provide this world-class care and participate in VA clinical trials that give Veterans access to the most up-to-date treatments. Our doctors also practice and hold academic appointments at OHSU.
