During Your Care
At Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), you’ll have a personal health care team led by an expert doctor for your disease, with a nurse who manages your care, and a patient team coordinator who serves as your scheduler and first point of contact.
What you’ll experience as a patient varies by the treatment and services you need.
- Where to call for medical problems: How to reach your health care team or the after-hours specialist who can help.
- What to expect during treatment:
- Medical support services: To give you the best possible care, your health care team may include a social worker, physical therapist, nutritionist, and other specialists.
- Quality care and patient safety: Our top priorities.
These resources can help you play a more active role in your health care.
