Cancer Programs

Accredited by the Commission on Cancer Since 1993

Washington Hospital has collaborated with UCSF Health to provide oncology patients with access to the latest cancer research, technology and treatment in a comforting and convenient environment.

As medical director, UCSF physician Bogdan Eftimie, MD, oversees cancer services at Washington Hospital.

Together with referring providers, Washington Hospital and UCSF Health aim to redefine what is possible in cancer care while significantly improving the lives of the patients we serve.

A cancer diagnosis understandably causes fear and unease, and naturally you will want to find the best possible medical care to treat it. That’s exactly what you’ll receive as a patient at Washington Hospital Healthcare System’s Comprehensive Community Cancer Program. We treat a wide range of cancer types with advanced treatment designed for optimal outcomes delivered by board-certified physicians who specialize in oncology.

Lung Cancer Screening Program

Studies show how screening is a valuable tool for detecting lung cancer at the earliest, most treatable stages. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force — an independent volunteer panel of national health experts — recommends low-dose CT scans for individuals deemed “high risk”. Talk with your doctor about whether or not a scan is right for you or someone you love.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Between 55–77 years old
  • Asymptomatic (no symptoms of lung cancer)
  • Tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack years. (Pack years = number of packs per day multiplied by years smoked.)
  • Current smoker or one who has quit smoking within the last 15 years
