Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) will open a new patient care center in Issaquah on April 1. The new site reflects SCCA’s commitment to expanding access to a full suite of cancer treatment services in locations that are closer to home for patients.
“A central part of our mission is to ensure people have access to the best cancer treatments as close to their community and loved ones as possible,” said Dr. Nancy Davidson, executive director and president of SCCA. “These clinics will provide patients across our region with the highest level of care and the most advanced treatments available.”
During the past 15 years, SCCA has initiated partnerships with communities across Washington, and beyond in Idaho, Montana, Alaska and Hawaii to deliver on the vision.
Two months ago, SCCA opened a clinic on the Kitsap Peninsula in Poulsbo.
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance brings together research teams and cancer specialists from Fred Hutch, Seattle Children’s, and UW Medicine. SCCA has been ranked among the top 10 cancer centers in the United States for more than 13 years, and No. 1 in Washington for more than 10 years, through U.S. News and World Report hospital rankings. It is a pioneer in clinical trials.
The SCCA Issaquah clinic will include a “universal room” concept where the care comes to the patients all in one comfortable and private room.
“There is no question that offering cancer treatment in a local setting — where patients can be closer to home and the people and things they love — can contribute to their healing. We are proud to offer the communities of Issaquah and Poulsbo the same superior outcomes patients have come to expect from our clinic in South Lake Union,” said Dr. Jennie R. Crews, administrative and medical director, SCCA community sites and medical director, SCCA affiliate network. “We are humbled to be so warmly embraced by the great people of these communities.” Learn about SCCA and all of their other locations at seattlecca.org.
