At HCA Houston Healthcare Medical Center, we are committed to caring for our patients with purpose and integrity – especially when it comes to those diagnosed with cancer.

Our treatment plans may include a combination of modalities and therapies. To help navigate through it all, our patients have access to an oncology nurse navigator. These dedicated nurses work closely with our patients and the rest of our oncology team to answer questions, schedule appointments and act as a guide to additional resources and support services.

Other members of our multidisciplinary oncology team include medical, surgical and radiation oncologists, radiation therapists, physicists and social workers who work together to carry out a treatment plan personalized for each patient's needs.
