Cancer Care

We Are Defying the Odds Every Day

Good Samaritan’s cancer program is among an elite group of programs nationwide accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. We offer comprehensive care and a range of state-of-the-art services, which means patients who are diagnosed with cancer can receive all of their treatment near family and friends from physicians and medical professionals who know and care about them.

Our interdisciplinary approach includes experts who have received the most advanced training in cancer care, ranging from screening and diagnosis to treatment and end-of-life comfort when needed. Our services include:

boutiqueWe recognize that the journey through cancer treatment can be overwhelming, and we offer an oncology nurse navigator to help you along the way. Financial Services, Social Services, Pastoral Care, Registered Dietitians, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy are among other services that are available.



Support Services

Support Services officeGood Samaritan recognizes that the journey through cancer treatment can be overwhelming. Cancer is a disease unique to every individual, so cancer care cannot be isolated to just the physical treatment of cancer, but must incorporate all aspects of living and surviving. Good Samaritan is proud to offer a wide range of psychosocial support services, either on-site or by referral.

  • We have a dedicated oncology social worker available to patients who need assistance finding financial support through local and national resources. The social worker can also assist with completing advance directives, and navigating through complex emotional and mental dilemmas relating to cancer.
  • Our two nurse navigators are excellent resources for scheduling appointments and facilitating and maintaining communication between the patient and the testing and treatment departments.
  • Cancer and its treatment often lead to nutrition-related symptoms. Our oncology dietitian is available to all patients to help cope with changes in appetite, taste, weight loss, or general nutrition-related concerns.
  • The Cancer Pavilion’s on-site boutique is open to assist patients managing the aesthetic effects of cancer by providing a supply of complimentary wigs, turbans, and hats.
  • Additionally, the boutique features the Patient Survivor Supply Closet, a resource devoted to providing all oncology patients with complimentary household consumables such as personal care products and home cleaning products.
  • Good Samaritan also has the ability to refer oncology patients to insurance navigation, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, temporary prosthetics, pastoral care and more!
