Where education and compassion meet.
Approximately 40 percent of all individuals will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. That's a startling statistic, and one that our doctors and staff are constantly working to change. We'll help you learn about the disease, show you how to recognize ways to improve your health, offer ways to help build a personal support system, and offer a sense of extended family.
At French Hospital Medical Center, our nurse navigators are highly skilled nurses who are specially trained to help you figure out what screenings you need along with the different cancer treatment options you'll find. They can provide education about your diagnosis and can connect you with valuable resources in the community.
Treating the Patient: Mind, Body, and Soul
At Dignity Health, we believe healing happens through kindness. Watch good friends and football rivals together on their cancer journeys, share the time of their lives. A special thanks to their Dignity Health oncologist Dr. Thomas Spillane, Dignity Health’s French Hospital Medical Center, Dignity Health President & CEO Lloyd Dean, ACI Jet, and Dream Makers SLO.
The HCRC was made possible by generous gifts from members of the Hearst Family, Hearst Foundation and other donors. These donations allow all cancer patients and families use of this unique center and its resources free of charge. The HCRC integrates many community cancer organizations under one roof with the expertise of oncology professionals on staff.
