At Moffitt Cancer Center your patients are our top priority. Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be an overwhelming and anxious time. Every day counts and we are committed to starting the right treatment for your patients as soon as possible to calm their fears and provide the best outcome.
When you refer a patient to Moffitt, scheduled patients will be rapidly connected with a cancer expert who specializes in their disease within a day. During their first connection the patient can address any anxieties or questions in preparation for the first appointment.
We are raising our commitment to patients at a time when they feel the greatest uncertainty and fear, the days surrounding their initial diagnosis and first call to Moffitt. Our goal is to support patients with compassionate personalized care every step of the way so that they can have the confidence and courage to face what lies ahead.
"This fundamental transformation of how patients make their first rapid connection to a Moffitt cancer expert serves as the focal point of this new accelerated service," said Louis B. Harrison, MD, Moffitt Cancer Center Vice President, Chief Partnership Officer, and Deputy Physician-in-Chief. "We are not aware of any other organization providing this for oncology, so we view this as a one-of-a-kind national advancement in cancer care."
We understand every patient’s case is unique and want to partner with referring physicians to provide the best possible personalized care for all patients as quickly as possible. Our commitments to you and your patients include:
- Rapid contact with a cancer expert, within a day of being scheduled
- Starting on the right treatment, with the right providers
- Multidisciplinary approach and individualized treatment plans
- Next-generation treatments and technologies
- A robust clinical trials program
“Any person who helps in that moment of life lives in the patients' hearts forever, and that's where we come in,” shared Dr. Harrison
