A breast cancer diagnosis can be devastating. But with the Overlake Cancer Center by your side, you will receive innovative, compassionate care that gives you the best chance for a full recovery. If caught early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is now 90%. We are proud to be part of this positive trend by providing the most advanced and effective treatments possible.
Working Together for the Best Outcomes
The Overlake Cancer Center works in collaboration with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center at the Overlake campus, which means our patients have access not only to the best medical oncologists, but also to clinical trials that are paving the way for the most advanced cancer treatments.
In addition to a medical oncologist, you will have a variety of expert providers making up your treatment team – which may include surgical, infusion and/or radiation oncologists. Our specially trained patient navigators will contact you shortly after diagnosis to help you through every step of your treatment journey.
Overlake’s Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Clinic has been established to provide convenience and peace of mind for our newly diagnosed patients. To start, all the specialists involved in your care will meet to discuss the best treatment options for your specific cancer. They will each meet with you on the same day and you will walk away with your entire treatment plan and a schedule that allows you the least disruption to your life.
Support services at the Overlake Cancer Center include Medical Nutrition, Oncology Social Work, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Spiritual Care, Massage Therapy and Palliative Care.
In addition, we have licensed genetic counselors to help patients identify and manage inherited cancer risks. The information they provide can help guide treatment decisions, and even suggest ways to prevent other cancers from occurring.
