Our Philosophy & Approach
Our philosophy is to encourage patients and their families to participate
in discussions and decision making about their treatment with their physicians
and nurses. We recognize that people may feel helpless when cancer is
diagnosed. Giving patients and loved ones a voice in their care helps
to restore a sense of control, which is an important key to maintaining
a positive outlook.
Our staff takes pride in creating a supportive and healing environment
for patients and their families. Cancer patients receive treatment, care
and support from many specialists throughout Boulder Community Health.
This full complement of services addresses each individual's physical,
emotional, social and spiritual needs.
Our cancer inpatients are cared for on the first floor of Foothills Hospital
in unit 1 North. Many of our nurses have obtained national certification
in their specialty, recognition of their expertise and their commitment
to their craft and their patients.
A broad range of outpatient services and extensive complementary therapies
are provided in the Tebo Family Medical Building, which is adjacent to
