Our mission, like that of BMC, is to provide provide each patient we see with exceptional care, without exception. Our team of physicians, nurses and support service personnel are among the best in the country and our treatment approach, facilities and technology are state-of-the-art.
Treatment for lung cancer, chest cancer and esophageal cancer requires an interdisciplinary approach that draws on various medical specialties. At BMC, we are fortunate to have highly skilled physicians in all of the disciplines needed to provide comprehensive, quality care including medical oncology, radiation oncology, thoracic surgery, gastroenterology, pathology, pulmonary medicine and radiology.
We believe that treatment for cancer requires a collaborative, team approach, not only among your doctors, nurses and support service providers, but with you and your family as full participants in your care. We understand that a cancer diagnosis challenges patients and families in many ways and we are committed to meeting those challenges with you.
We will take care of you through all phases of your care from diagnosis to treatment to follow-up care and you will always be treated with dignity and respect by all of the members of your care team.
The Center offers a full spectrum of clinical services to provide exceptional treatment for patients with lung cancer, chest and esophageal cancers.
