At Phoenix Cancer Center, patient care is delivered in a multidisciplinary manner – diagnoses and treatment options are discussed among a group of specialists including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, nurses and other experts focused on the management of cancer. Inpatient care is delivered at Maricopa Medical Center, a 541-bed acute care hospital located in central Phoenix.
