Quality Outcomes

The Cancer Program at Miami Valley Hospital has a long history of providing advanced cancer care with positive outcomes.

The MVH Cancer Committee measures, reviews and compares our level of excellence to national benchmarks. The Cancer Committee is a multidisciplinary team of cancer clinicians that reviews clinical and quality outcomes related to cancer care.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Commission on Cancer has established standards. Cancer programs volunteer to have their program surveyed and reviewed triennially. Miami Valley Hospital’s commitment to high standards of care is evidenced by our cancer program’s continuous approval by the ACS’s Commission on Cancer since 1965. Read More.

High Risk Breast Cancer Center

Miami Valley Hospital offers two High Risk Breast Cancer Centers, located at Miami Valley Hospital South and Miami Valley Hospital North, that offer genetic counseling and testing, as well as comprehensive care for women with increased risk of developing breast cancer. Learn More

Lymphedema/Oncology Rehab

Although lymphedema is a progressive condition with no known cure, it’s important to know that it can be managed. Miami Valley Hospital North offers a specialized lymphedema program that can help improve comfort and regain function. Learn More.

Interdisciplinary Treatment Plans

Experienced physicians guide the Site-Specific Cancer Conferences at MVH Cancer Program. These physicians meet to discuss individual patient cases to determine which treatment has the best chance of stopping tumor growth, shrinking tumor size or removing the tumor. Individualized treatment plans take into account tumor size, growth stage, aggressiveness and position within the body.

Cancer Program Weapons

Researchers are making great advances every day in the fight against cancer. The word "fight" is appropriate for treating cancer; each patient gets his or her own battle plan that physicians continually access and modify as the fight progresses.

The three major "weapons" at MVH's Cancer Center are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, used alone or in combination. MVH Cancer Center offers many unique tools, including hormone therapy and biotherapy/targeted therapy, blood and marrow transplant and the da Vinci Robot® for minimally-invasive surgeries such as gynecologic surgeries and prostatectomies.
