Virginia K. Crosson Cancer Center and Infusion Center
Our board-certified medical oncologists and hematologists expertly treat
a wide variety of cancers, using advances in chemotherapy, biotherapy,
and immunology to return patients to their families and lives. These cancer
experts – part of the St. Jude Heritage Center for Hematology and
Oncology – are using cancer vaccines, targeted cellular therapies
and other breakthroughs in care to more successfully treat cancer than
ever thought possible.
By exceeding national standards and demonstrating an absolute commitment
to excellence, our physicians are one of only a handful of oncology practices
in the state to be recognized by the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s
Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) Program.
Many experts, one cause
Partnering with our medical oncologists are some of Southern California’s
most respected surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists,
research nurses, and other cancer specialists, ensuring comprehensive,
highly coordinated care. Weekly conferences allow the entire team to review
a patient’s care, discuss treatment options, and contribute their
expertise. With a dozen different disciplines participating, these conferences
ensure the latest concepts in cancer treatment are evaluated and applied.
Located inside the Crosson Cancer Center, just steps away from our physicians’
offices, is an Infusion Center staffed by specially-trained oncology nurses—each
with Chemotherapy Biotherapy Certification—who are passionate about
the care they give patients. A dedicated oncology nurse educator is also
available to support patients receiving oral chemotherapies.
