Practice President Joni Nichols, MD, explains features of our new Valley Treatment Center to KREM Live Well
Cancer Care Northwest has been serving the Spokane area for more than 30 years and we are very excited to have our new facility in Spokane Valley, which has allowed us to bring our cutting-edge radiation oncologists and imaging technology to all our locations. Cancer Care Northwest is unique because we have multi-disciplinary cancer care under one roof. Medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgical oncologists meet and dialogue about patients on a constant basis both to enhance the patient experience and to improve their cancer care.
At Cancer Care Northwest, we realize that cancer patients spend a lot of time at treatment facilities and that’s why they’re so happy to have a brand new building. Not only does it improve the atmosphere, but it also creates better quality care of our patients.
We'd like to thank the Inland Northwest Chive Chapter for their generous donation of 1400 dollars to the Cancer Care Northwest Foundation.
