Why Choose Us for Endocrine Cancer Care?

At Providence, we see the life in you. Together, let’s finish cancer – so you don’t have to miss any of life’s special moments.

No two patients, or their treatment plans, are alike. This is why, at Providence, we take a highly personalized approach to your endocrine cancer care. You’ll experience this through our multidisciplinary tumor boards, where your oncology team collaborates with other cancer care experts about your specific diagnosis. We also offer a Providence Molecular Tumor Board, where we evaluate your genomic and clinical information to find the best genetically matched treatment for you. Your oncology team will work with you directly to design a treatment plan that fits your personal needs. It’s an approach that combines leading-edge treatment with the compassionate care Providence is known for. Why? Because we know this results in the best outcomes.

As a patient, you’ll be supported through your entire cancer journey by a multidisciplinary cancer care team. You’ll be treated by board-certified surgeons, otolaryngologists and endocrinologists. Some patients may require treatment by medical oncologists or radiation oncologists. If surgery is required, our world-class head and neck surgeons use the most advanced techniques, which may include robotics and minimally invasive procedures. It’s a team-based approach to endocrine cancer care. Your care team may include oncology nurse navigators and other cancer specialists. We also provide you and your family with a full range of support services well beyond conventional treatment – from genetic counseling and education to nutrition and pain management.

Cancer doesn’t discriminate, but access to great endocrine cancer care hasn’t always been the same for everyone. At Providence, we are deeply committed to making sure every patient we treat has access to the best cancer care. We offer various location-specific services to help our patients receive equitable care, such as translation for non-English speaking patients, telehealth and transportation assistance. We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and spiritual identities of each member of our diverse communities, and we welcome all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. We aim to make sure every patient is treated equally and with dignity – whoever you are, and wherever you're at.

As a patient at Providence, you have access to the largest community-based cancer network in the United States. Being part of a collaborative network means that your local endocrine cancer care team shares knowledge and experience with other world-class clinicians across 51 hospitals in seven states. The extent and power of our network is one of the reasons more than 1,500 new endocrine cancer patients, and 50,000 new cancer patients, choose Providence each year.

Providence is well known for offering options – and hope – to patients seeking the most advanced procedures and therapies to treat endocrine cancer.  As a patient, you have the opportunity to participate in one of our many cutting-edge clinical trials for endocrine cancers happening across the Providence network, including a new trial that is the first to study a targeted therapy combination for thyroid cancer.
