Joseph S. and Theresa R. Bruno Cancer Center
The Bruno Cancer Center takes a body, mind, and spirit approach to caring for cancer patients and their families. Our comprehensive program blends high-tech treatment with a caring, personal touch.
Operating on the premise that high-quality cancer patient care is a very complex and personnel-intensive process, we emphasize a multidisciplinary team approach integrating the services of our physicians, nurses , social services, chaplains, hospital and community support programs, home services, and administrative staff. Additionally, the Bruno Cancer Center sponsors annual screenings provided to the community at no cost for cancers of the head, neck, and face; prostate cancer; and skin cancer.
Patient care is planned and managed by teams based in the Bruno Cancer Center and Oncology Unit. On-site medical and radiation oncologists collaborate with surgeons, primary care, and other physician consultants primarily in those areas but also on other hospital floors. Virtually every new cancer diagnosis is reviewed weekly by a multidisciplinary physician tumor conference. This system offers patients and physicians a dynamic process that organizes and implements the major (and seemingly minor) elements of a comprehensive physician service.
