Receiving a cancer diagnosis can seem overwhelming at first. There is likely a lot you do not yet understand about this disease and the treatments.

Cancer survival rates have been on the rise over the years, and treatment has come a long way in improving the quality of life for patients. Now is the time to come together with your loved ones and care team to discuss your options.

Adventist Health Tillamook provides a variety of inpatient and outpatient services, as well as support and education within the medical center and in the community at large. We will be there to support you through your cancer journey and tend to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.

We maintain a patient-centered approach to cancer care

Our oncologic specialists are dedicated to developing a treatment plan specifically designed to meet your individual needs. They use a multidisciplinary approach that integrates therapies to focus on your medical, nutritional, physical, psychological and spiritual needs. Your specialist can work with Dr. Gibbs to provide the treatment you need locally at our medical center.

Exploring your cancer treatment options

Cancer is a disease that starts when abnormal cells appear in the body and begin reproducing. In time, these cancers will start to overwhelm and even attack the healthy cells. In many cases, they will start to develop a tumor that will create passageways to other parts of the body so the cancer can spread. Our goal is to slow down the growth of cancer cells and eradicate them once and for all.

Our medical oncology department offers advanced treatment protocols including:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Biological therapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Monoclonal antibody therapy
  • Antibiotics
  • Blood transfusions
  • Hormonal therapy

We also offer related therapies in the comfort of our infusion rooms. Care is provided by experienced nursing staff using the most current treatment regimens and techniques. This is a team effort, and we are happy to answer your questions and address concerns during treatment.
