Patients & Families
At Moffitt Cancer Center, we take a patient- and family-centered approach to cancer treatment. We are committed to the health and safety of our patients and their families above all else. This means more than developing individualized treatment plans and providing expert cancer care for our patients – it also means that our clinical and supportive care teams view our patients and their families as partners, ensuring that they are always heard and able to take an active role in their own care.
