The care here is well-rounded, and patients have a whole team behind them. I wanted to be a part of that. It’s not just us making decisions and giving advice. It’s very patient-centered, and this team-based approach is something I really value.
I value the continuity of care with patients and forming relationships over the time it takes to treat their condition. Oncology is a challenging field, but it’s also incredibly gratifying to be present for people while they are hearing news they don’t want to hear.

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch doctors. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your doctor can decide if a study is right for you.
At Fred Hutch, you receive care from a team of providers with extensive experience in your disease. Your team includes doctors, a patient care coordinator, a registered nurse, an advanced practice provider and others, based on your needs. You also have access to experts like nutritionists, social workers, acupuncturists, psychiatrists and more who specialize in supporting people with cancer or blood disorders.
Fred Hutch accepts most national private health insurance plans as well as Medicare. We also accept Medicaid for people from Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho. We are working to ensure that everyone, no matter what their financial situation, has access to the care they need.
