Care and Treatment

Programs and Services

The extensive range of advanced clinical services available under one roof truly reflects the world-class nature of the treatment patients receive at the Stanford Cancer Center.

Here is a sampling of some of the programs and services available to you:

Care for your mind and spirit at Stanford

It wouldn't be the best care possible if we didn't provide it in an atmosphere that soothes your soul and makes navigating treatment simple and convenient. By providing nourishing details like live piano music in the entry, natural light throughout the building, and room for your family to remain with you while you are receiving treatment, the Stanford Cancer Center stands as a physical symbol of our concern for your health and well-being.

In addition, a variety of services, and support staff are available to help with emotional, physical, or social challenges that you might encounter while receiving cancer care. Visit Cancer Patient Services to learn more about the variety of programs and services we offer.

Support groups and classes

The importance of support groups and their impact on cancer patient outcomes is well established; much of this important work has come from support groups at Stanford. Psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers are involved in cancer support groups within the program.

Visit the Cancer Supportive Care Program to learn about the free classes, groups, and events we offer at the Stanford Cancer Center.
