When patients come first, they live longer, fuller lives. Our five-year survival rate for patients with metastatic cancer is nearly five times greater than the national rate. See the data and learn what the gift of more time means to the people we care for.
At The Ghosh Center, you’re considered a survivor from the moment you’re diagnosed. Our survivorship program is designed to help you live with, through and beyond cancer to a full and thriving future.
Our unique approach improves survival through:
The proof is in our results.
Many of our patients have experienced longer lives as a result of our patient-centered approach to care. One example of improved survival rates comes from our success in helping more breast cancer patients.
The majority of breast cancer patients receive chemotherapy; however, overall survival rates decline when relative dose intensity (RDI) is less than 85%. (RDI is the amount of chemotherapy given in proportion to the amount recommended.) The Ghosh Center achieves RDI of 98% – far better than 85% – and far more effective in helping our patients beat breast cancer.
How do we achieve these results? We have a proven approach that improves the consistency and impact of treatment. This includes helping you:
We respond to concerns about side effects on a 24/7 basis. As a result of this support, our patients experience fewer emergency room visits and hospital re-admissions. They also have lower related healthcare expenses.
When your core treatment ends, our relationship with you continues. We provide follow-up care to monitor your health and manage long-term side effects of treatment. We also help you live healthfully and enhance your quality of life.
At The Ghosh Center, our patients are part of our community. Our annual Celebration of Life Picnic brings together current and former patients, family, friends and wellness professionals to celebrate the gift of life.
