When you have cancer, choosing the right place to go for treatment can be a difficult decision.
Living on the Olympic Peninsula, you may want to stay in your community and receive cancer treatment at a hospital you know and trust. At the same time, you probably want access to leading-edge research and treatment options, including those only available in clinical trials.
The affiliation between Olympic Medical Cancer Center and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, gives you the best of both worlds—care in your own community by skilled and dedicated oncologists, nurses, and staff, plus access to the resources of SCCA and its parent organizations.
Olympic Medical Cancer Center
In 2003, Olympic Medical Cancer Center opened its doors in Sequim and became affiliated with SCCA, to give people with cancer who live on the Olympic Peninsula access to a broader range of cancer services and the expertise of nationally renowned cancer specialists. Olympic Medical's board-certified physicians and staff are dedicated to providing patient-centered care with the most advanced technology available. Olympic Medical Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR), as well as the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
