Knowledge is power in the fight
against cancer. That's why the cancer program at Texas Health
Presbyterian Hospital Plano is dedicated to providing information
and support to help you make sense of your cancer diagnosis and
treatment options. With the help of our American Cancer Society
Resource Center, specially trained nurses, skilled medical staff
and caring support groups, we'll help you replace fear with facts
and hopelessness with healing.
We combine knowledge with skilled
specialists and advanced services to give you the quality medical
care you need to fight the disease. The physicians on the medical
staff and employees with the Texas Health Plano cancer program
offer a full continuum of care, including diagnosis, treatment,
rehabilitation, education, support, prevention, research and
long-term follow-up of patients.
Oncologists on the medical staff
and employees of Texas Health Plano have earned recognition for
their work. In 2008, the cancer program at Texas Health Plano
received the highest level of approval from the American College
of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer. It was announced in 2009, that
the program received the Outstanding Achievement Award for
exceeding the requirements for full approval.
Our oncology nurse navigator will
be a point of contact, assisting you every step of the way to
help you understand your diagnosis and treatment options. From
assisting with appointments to overcoming barriers to care, she
is the person you can turn to for answers. To contact the program

We're not only dedicated to
treating cancer at Texas Health Plano, we're also committed to
