The Right Choice for Your Cancer Care
Serving Inpatients and Outpatients
At Vista Health System, we bring exceptional cancer care right to the doorstep of patients in northern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin. That means you can stay close to home to see board-certified oncologists, surgeons and radiologists, along with our entire staff of highly trained nurses and medical technicians.
Vista is the right choice for the kind of diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care you need. Our daily commitment is multi-disciplinary cancer care utilizing national clinical guidelines and quality measures. This includes the latest in educational resources, technologies and procedures for prevention, screening and diagnosis of cancer. And, if a definitive diagnosis of cancer is made, Vista takes care of every step along the way – radiology, lab, surgery, medical oncology/chemotherapy, hematology, radiation oncology and clinical research interventions.
We offer a complete cancer care continuum that serves our patients through a number of conveniently located inpatient and outpatient locations. Inpatient care is provided within our dedicated oncology unit at Vista Medical Center East (VMCE) in Waukegan where patients are provided all-private rooms. During their inpatient stays, patients receive care by Vista's specialty trained, oncology specific nursing staff.
For outpatient services, our multiple cancer program locations offer easy access and flexible scheduling to accommodate your daily routine. Within your uniquely designed care plan, we provide a full range of nutritional guidance, social services and support groups, rehabilitation services and survivorship plans.
We're Here With You
The real difference in cancer care at Vista is the relationship we build with you. Whether it's a caring touch, a kind word or just someone who will listen, we never lose sight of your individual needs, comfort and peace of mind.
Our physicians and healthcare professionals are talented, experienced and compassionate. They understand the physical, emotional, social and financial needs facing cancer patients today. And everyone on our medical, clinical and support staff is dedicated to your well-being and quality of life throughout your specific diagnosis, treatment and survivorship care plan.
Exceptional Patient Navigation
We know that a cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment can be a fearful and stressful time. That's why we provide the services of a nurse navigator who works with you and your family. The nurse navigator is your personal advocate to solve problems, conquer the medical maze and develop your personal roadmap to recovery.
Vista's unique advantage is that each of our navigators is an oncology certified registered nurse (OCN, RN). Having a highly qualified expert on your side can be invaluable as you navigate the diagnostic workup process and/or receive a cancer diagnosis. Our nurse navigators help you obtain important results as quickly as possible, and they'll keep you from feeling overwhelmed by information overload or by the administrative and insurance burdens of cancer management.
