At Good Samaritan | Cancer Centers of Colorado, our patient navigators are here to guide you and your family at every stage.

Types of cancer

We treat all cancers regardless of type and stage. These are a few of the most common:

Cancer diagnosis and treatment

Our comprehensive services for cancer begin with prevention and screening and continue with personalized plans for treating cancer and returning you to health. To detect and monitor cancer, we offer advanced technology, including:

  • Tomosynthesis (3-D mammography) – Provides a more complete picture of the breast and can better reveal early-stage or hard-to-find cancers
  • A 64-slice PET/CT scan – Enables radiologists to see a more accurate picture of abnormal cell growth

Your treatment plan may include one or a combination of these approaches:

As part of treatment, we apply some of the latest tools available to attack tumors and malignancies with precision, while protecting nearby healthy tissue. These include:

  • Varian TrueBeam linear accelerator
  • Stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR)
  • 4-D computed tomography
  • 3-D conformal radiation (3D-CRT)
  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) using volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT)

What to expect

From the little things, like convenient parking and an on-site laboratory and pharmacy, to the biggest, like the latest treatments and technologies, we work to support your needs so you can focus on one thing: getting better. We recognize and respect individual differences and preferences and tailor treatment and services to your unique situation. This includes integrative therapies such as acupuncture and massage, spiritual care and stress management. We also partner with home care providers.

Our cancer team

Our doctors have trained at some of the most well-known schools and hospitals in the country and bring this expertise to you, so you benefit from high-quality care close to the support of family and friends. Good Samaritan Medical Center is part of a larger network of hospitals across the Denver area that offer even more knowledge, expertise and resources to your treatment plan, when needed.

We recognize that a cancer diagnosis is more than a disease, so we assemble a team of professionals, from therapists and nutritionists to social workers and chaplains, who work closely together in a coordinated approach to treating you as a whole person.

And the most important member of the team? You. We make you an active participant and decision-maker in your care plan.
