The Methodist Healthcare Cancer Network’s treatment plans are anchored in a collaborative culture among multiple healthcare specialists. Patients and their families can be assured they are receiving the best-personalized cancer treatment plan via one of 10 prospective conferences—a regular meeting based on specific types of cancers, where multiple physicians from all specialties discuss the most effective cancer treatment plan for an individual cancer patient.
