Volunteers staff the Family Room from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and help create a peaceful space for families with a child in the NICU. Families can spend the night in one of four sleeping rooms, take a shower in one of the ADA accessible restrooms, enjoy a snack, access the internet on one of the Family Room computers, watch TV, visit with other families or simply get away from the beeping of the hospital monitors for a few moments.

Our program is accredited with commendation by The American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer. This voluntary accreditation is part of our commitment to ensuring that all our patients have access to a full range of medical services from a multidisciplinary team that includes surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, and other cancer specialists.

Cancer is a complex group of diseases, and our multidisciplinary approach results in improved cancer care and better patient outcomes. This collaborative approach begins with the Cancer Committee, which provides leadership, sets goals, monitors program activity, and evaluates patient treatment plans and survival rates. Our Cancer Team Conferences provide a forum for patient consultations to determine appropriate treatment plans and, by sharing information, helps physicians stay abreast of the latest developments in cancer care.
