Our expert team includes some of the nation’s premier specialists.

  • Surgeons with expertise in cancer surgeries.
  • Radiologists with superlative skills in the application of radiologic technology for cancer screening and diagnosis. Our radiologists are also experts in the diagnostic use of PET scans, which indicate cancer-related cellular changes before they are visible with CTs or MRIs.
  • Medical Oncologists experts in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
  • Radiation Oncologists trained physicians who oversee the treatment of cancer patients at the Center, using the latest radiation therapy techniques, including linear-accelerator radiation and intensity-modulated radiation.
  • Pathologists with extensive training and experience in the analysis of body tissue to confirm or rule out a diagnosis of cancer – and to help identify any special considerations that may influence treatment decisions.
  • Oncology Social Workers who understand the emotional and psychosocial pressures faced by cancer patients, and who are available to assist with a comprehensive range of referrals and support services.
  • RN Nurse Navigator a registered nurse who is responsible for streamlining and coordinating the entire, often-complex diagnosis, treatment and follow-up process for cancer patients. This may include advocacy with insurance companies, assistance with scheduling, and much more. For patients who require hospital admission, inpatient care coordinators are also available to assist with discharge and post-hospitalization services. The care-coordination program at Huntington Cancer Center is unique in our region and provides significant benefits and peace of mind to our patients and their families.
  • Symptom-Management Care Coordinator who assists patients experiencing cancer-related side effects or pain. This registered nurse helps assess the patient’s need for symptom-management services, works with each patient’s physician to ensure that appropriate pain management is provided, and coordinates appropriate complementary therapies.
  • Nursing Staff specially prepared to provide both inpatient and outpatient care to cancer patients in the area of radiation oncology, nurses help assess patients’ needs and work closely with physicians to provide exceptional cancer care. Our inpatient oncology nurses are all expert in the administration of chemotherapy, and are rigorously trained in all other aspects of cancer care.
  • Pharmacists who collaborate extensively with our physicians to design appropriate drug therapies for patients.
  • Appearance Center with a licensed cosmetologist, who assists patients with make-up application, human-hair prostheses, wigs and more, in order that they may look their best during and after treatment.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Huntington Hospital are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
