- A Care Navigator to Guide You
Cancer treatments can feel overwhelming. We want to make sure you never feel alone. The moment you begin your journey, a compassionate Care Navigator certified as an oncology social worker will be there with you, helping take care of every detail and comforting you with supportive counseling. Your oncology social worker can help you coordinate a range of services, including:
- Financial Assistance
- Home Care and Hospice Care
From scheduling appointments and finding referrals to clarifying paperwork and answering your every question, we’ll help you navigate each step or obstacle.
- Connected Care. Better Technology and Treatments.
When it comes to your care, you expect the best. That’s why our cancer team prides itself not just on our DeLand hospital, but on our connections to the leading cancer care experts in Volusia County. We don’t stop with current options. You'll have access to more national clinical trials than any other oncology practice in Florida.
Some of our leading cancer diagnostic and treatment technologies include:
- 3D Simulation Treatment Planning — Uses advanced technology to visualize the tumor and create the best plan for treatment
- 4D CT Simulation — Helps us see your tumor and healthy tissues through a moving video, allowing us to create a better treatment plan
- Brachytherapy — A treatment that involves placing tiny bits of radiation directly near the source of cancer
- Eclipse Treatment Planning System — Helps us plan your radiation doses by taking scans of your tumor in three dimensions
- Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) — The most advanced form of radiation available, allowing for the most precise tumor visualization possible
- Immunotherapies — Target cancer at the molecular level
- Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) — Combined with Rapid Arc, this delivers high doses of targeted radiation to help keep non-cancerous tissue healthy
- PET CT — Simulations that take a closer look at cancer cells that may be hidden, allowing for more accurate tumor targeting
- Rapid Arc — Cutting edge technology that combines shorter treatment time for the highest level of patient comfort, with IMRT technology for fewer side effects than standard radiation therapy.
- Stereotactic Radiation — A leading-edge and targeted high-dose radiation treatment that helps reduce treatment time
We also have a 48-hour appointment guarantee, and work to get all lab tests back to you within 24 hours, because time is important. Our Aria software system also records your medical history, nursing assessments, imaging reports, prescriptions, and cancer treatments, so every person on your team can work collaboratively and efficiently together.
- Proactive Screenings for Better Lung Care
Part of living a life of living a life of whole wellness means being proactive about your care. We want to lend a hand and make this easier. Lung cancer is important to catch early for better treatment options, and studies have shown that screenings are the best way to help people who are at a high risk. That’s why we provide life-saving low-dose CT (LDCT) lung screenings for people who have a high risk of lung cancer, based on the following criteria:
- Age 55 to 77
- Current Smoker or Smoker Who Quit in the Past 15 Years
- Heavy Smoker (Smoking History of 30 Years of at Least 1 Pack Per Day)
It is recommended that all high-risk individuals get a low dose CT scan of the lungs. Once we deem that you are eligible for this screening, we’ll set you up with an appointment at one of our four locations and walk you through each step. If we suspect lung cancer, we’ll make sure to find the right treatment option for you and start you on your journey as soon as possible to give you the best chance at recovery.
To find out if you're eligible for proactive lung cancer screening, call Call1-866-328-6417.
