The Cardio-Oncology Program provides comprehensive, collaborative heart and cancer care that seeks to improve clinical outcomes and quality of life for those who are currently being treated for cancer as well as cancer survivors susceptible to long-term cardiac complications. Working closely with a patient’s existing oncology care team, the Cardio-Oncology Program helps create co-managed treatment plans that balance and maximize cancer-fighting therapies with cardioprotective strategies.
