Spokane Valley Cancer Center joins the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance

Spokane Valley Cancer Center joined the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) Network to become that group's 12th member.

The Valley center's services include medical oncology, radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging, research, specialized oral pharmacy, and patient and family support.  It also offers radiosurgery using Spokane Cyberknife & Radiation Oncology Center.

The SCCA was formed by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine, and Seattle Children’s Hospital to unite the oncology-related patient-care services of these organizations.

“We are thrilled SCCA invited Spokane Valley Cancer Center to become part of its network,” said Arvind Chaudhry, an oncologist and hematologist at Spokane Valley Cancer Center.

The benefits for Spokane Valley Cancer Center oncologists include being able to offer patients expanded treatment options. rapid second opinions, and arranging for local patients to enroll in SCCA clinical trials without having to travel to Seattle.
