Leading the Way for Regional Cancer Care

When cancer strikes, our job is to treat it and defeat it. That’s why Good Samaritan has built a cancer care program that is among the most comprehensive and respected in the Pacific Northwest. It combines advanced medicine, expertise and technology — as well as a great deal of compassion and encouragement.

The $16 million Dr. Richard C. Ostenson Cancer Center at Good Samaritan offers some of the world’s most advanced cancer-fighting diagnostic technology, and comprehensive support services for patients and families.

The Dr. Richard C. Ostenson Cancer Center at Good Samaritan has been built on the strengths of four partnering organizations: MultiCare Health System, Good Samaritan Hospital, Rainier Physicians and Tacoma Valley Radiation Oncology. By combining the expertise and technologies of these four partners, patients have access to some of the most comprehensive services available anywhere including diagnosis, treatment and support.

The programs offered at the Good Samaritan Cancer Resource Center are available to anyone in the community and benefit oncology patients and their families.
