HoA mNewe A lmost everyone has been touched by cancer. Whether through a personal experience or that of a loved one, the disease isfoCrCaarencer far-reaching. The Yampa Valley is no exception. In the past, various cancer services have been spread throughout the hospital: patients receiving cancer care have had to navigate through the registration process each time they receive chemotherapy, or walk down long hallways to get from one appointment to another. When the Jan Bishop Cancer Center opens, patients will experience a tranquil, healing and comfortable environment with the same personal care from nationally recognized providers they’ve come to know in a new location, without ever leaving the Yampa Valley. The evolving face of cancer treatment As the over-65 population grows, northwest Colorado will likely experi- ence higher incidences of various cancers. Cancer treatment continues to advance and with that, survival rates improve. The five-year survival rate is 68 percent, a significant increase from 49 percent a few decades ago. By18 Y V M C H E A L T H

2020, that rate is expected to climb to 73 percent. With treatments nowmore effective, cancers are detected earlier and more accurately.Cancer care today includes a range of complementary services, all ofwhich help patients fight the disease with success. When patients can stay close to home to However advanced care may become, thecomfort of patients should always be at the forefront. receive treatment, they are often moreWhen patients can stay close to home to receivetreatment, they are often more comfortable, less comfortable, less stressed and experiencestressed and experience fewer disruptions to theirfamily life and work obligations. fewer disruptions to their family lifeCombining these factors, YVMC realized a newcancer center was needed.
