If you are like most people, your life has been touched by cancer in some way. Perhaps you have cared for a cancer patient or supported a family member who fought the disease. Maybe you have had your own cancer scare or are proud to be a survivor.
Whatever your individual experience has been, you likely have concerns about cancer. If you or a loved one is diagnosed, you want to know where you can receive the most compassionate and comprehensive cancer care available.
At St. Petersburg General Hospital, our Cancer Care Center offers a multidisciplinary team approach to diagnosing and treating cancer. Our doctors, nurses, and technologists will be with you every step of the way—explaining your condition, answering your questions, and helping you understand what will happen next.
Among our services are:
- cancer screening and diagnostic imaging
- chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery
- social services and support groups
- cancer education and cancer registry
- discharge planning and pain management
Our hospital was recently awarded a three-year accreditation for oncology by the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). This means that our facility meets the criteria set out by the ACoS and has completed its on-site evaluations. In addition, we received four commendations for quality data submission, prevention and early detection, education of cancer registry staff, and quality improvements.
We know that receiving a cancer diagnosis is a life-changing moment, but our staff is here to care for you and support you through your journey. Our goal is to treat your condition so you can regain your strength and health—both for yourself and the people who love you.
