On behalf of the staff of the Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute,
I would like to be the first to welcome you to our program. We know that
this is a challenging time for you and your loved ones and I would like
to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing us to be a partner
in your care. The information in this website is designed as a guide to
help you to navigate through the complicated world of cancer care. It
is our goal to help you through all aspects of your treatment with as
much ease and comfort as possible. This website will help answer many
of your questions and help to guide you when discussing your treatment
with members of your care team.
Many of our team members have been with our program for years; some for
their entire careers. We pledge that we will treat you as if you were
one of our own family members. And treating family members takes special
amounts of care, comfort and support. To make that possible, we have brought
together a multidisciplinary care team of highly trained professionals.
Your nurse, technologists, dosimetrists, physicists, physicians and psychosocial
staff are all certified and highly regarded in their respective fields.
Our five physicians have more than 80 years of combined experience treating
cancer patients and we are all board certified. The physicists who work
behind the scenes are recognized experts in quality control, patient safety
and treatment validation. Our dosimetrists have a combined total of more
than 50 years of clinical experience, and our nurses more than 60 years.
The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certifies all of our
therapists and our full-service psychosocial program offers complimentary
individual, family and group counseling. Working side-by-side with the
administrative staff, research team and data center, your care team’s
number one priority is improving your sense of well-being. Most importantly,
our commitment is to treat all of our patients with dignity and respect.
When your treatments are complete, and you reflect back on your experience
at the Lynn Cancer Institute, our greatest hope is that you will remember
us as compassionate professionals dedicated to your health and well-being.
