Collaborative Care and Expertise Help Ensure the Best Outcome for You

Sophisticated cancer care takes teamwork. That’s why Scott & White promotes a collaborative environment.

Your Integrated Care Team will met to discuss your specific needs and determine the best treatment options for you to consider. Then your lead physician will talk with you and, if you’d like, your family, about the team’s recommendations.

Together, you and your lead physician will decide which treatment choice is best for you.

Throughout your treatment, your physicians will continue to meet regularly to discuss your care. This ongoing, close collaboration helps ensure the best outcome for you.

Following active treatment, your Integrated Care Team will work with you to create the most appropriate follow-up care plan.
