COVID-19 update: During this unprecedented global crisis, we’ve been working nonstop to develop protocols, policies and recommendations for the care of known or suspected COVID-19 patients, the safety of healthcare workers and health of our communities. We hope that by sharing our work, we can collaborate and inform your teams to be able to spend more time responding to and caring for your patients.

UW Medicine provides a full spectrum of cancer management – from prevention to caring for newly diagnosed patients, to coordinating specialty care for patients with advanced forms of the disease. We provide leading-edge treatments and clinical trials for brain, breast, colorectal, genitourinary, gynecologic, liver, lung, pancreatic, prostate in addition to lymphatic and other blood cancers.
