Cancer Care at Banner Health
It's no wonder more people turn to Banner Health for their cancer care in Arizona, Northern Colorado and in all of the other communities we serve. Patients and their families rely on Banner Health for excellent patient care provided by experienced physicians and staff.
We understand that the best path of cancer treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis. Our cancer detection services help your doctor to clearly determine whether you have cancer, and to judge if the cancer is in an early or later stage.
Our medical imaging services (you may know this as X-ray) are especially important in cancer detection. This includes state-of-the-art technologies like computerized tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) capability for breast cancer diagnosis.
Specialized Treatment Plans
Cancer patients admitted into our hospitals can be confident that the most current and specialized treatments are available to them. This includes bone marrow transplants and liver cancer procedures available only at Banner Health. Specialty cancer programs for women conveniently offer breast disease services in single locations. A children's oncology service is emerging as a major program to provide expertise and care to our most vulnerable cancer patients.
Patients and their families also appreciate the attention we give to creating healing environments. From original art painted on the walls in the rooms of patients, to soothing gardens, to beautifully-designed and recently opened cancer centers – the philosophy of healing supports the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of Banner patients.
Support for our patients goes well beyond diagnosis and treatment in the hospital. Various support groups are available through Banner, as are complementary services such as spiritual care, and music and pet therapy.
Finally, Banner Health offers cancer patients the opportunity to be involved in leading edge research. It is highly recommended that you discuss any involvement in research with your doctor.
