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.
