After we diagnose cancer, a patient treatment plan is created. At Logan Regional Hospital, this involves a team of doctors and healthcare professionals who work together to develop the most effective strategy for treating each patient. Several factors are taken into consideration when determining the best course of action. Some of these are age, overall health of the patient, type, location and stage of cancer.
A cancer treatment plan could involve radiation therapy, chemotherapy, surgery or any combination of the three. Before the patient begins treatment he or she will meet with all of the treating physicians. Here, the current health of the patient will be assessed, the treatment plan will be presented and the patient can ask questions. Throughout this process patients are encouraged to bring a family member to their appointment for emotional support, and to ask an additional questions.
Logan Regional Hospital is dedicated to the comfort and success of each individual. During treatment, an entire team of doctors, nurses and technicians is available to answer any questions and guide the patient. If there are changes in the cancer or the overall health of the patient during treatment, the team of physicians treating the patient will reevaluate the plan and immediately make any necessary changes.
