When you have cancer, choosing the right place to go for treatment can be a difficult decision.
If you live in the central Washington region, you may prefer 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 the latest treatment options, including those only available in clinical trials or at a comprehensive cancer center. Now you can have both.
The network relationship between Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and Wenatchee Valley Medical Center 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 founding organizations.
