PacMed Cancer Care – Northgate
Every year, more than a million people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer. Thanks to medical advancements and new knowledge about cancer treatment, the potential for a cure has never been better.
When people first learn they have cancer, many questions go through their minds: how will the illness affect their life and family, what will the treatment involve and will they experience a loss of control. At Pacific Medical Centers, our compassionate team of physicians and nurses in the Oncology and Hematology Center understand how people feel about a cancer diagnosis and are ready to partner with our patients in a very personal way, within a comfortable environment that allows people to live their lives during treatment and beyond.

Our priority is your success. Cancer care has been transformed by new medicine. Today, outcomes range from complete remission to manageable chronic conditions. At Pacific Medical Centers, we offer the latest technology and treatments to help ensure our patients’ success, comfort and well-being including T-PET scanning, targeted therapy and access to clinical trials.
Pacific Medical Centers follows the guidelines of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) for approved treatment plans. The NCCN provides the standard of care for North America.
A Personalized Approach to Treatment
Unlike larger, institutional-type facilities, we are a personalized, specialty cancer treatment center. As such, we are well suited to provide patients with the personalized treatment they deserve—both physical and emotional, from diagnosis to survivorship.
Our experienced team of board-certified physicians work collaboratively with Swedish Medical Center and the Swedish Tumor Institute, as well as with the University of Washington Medical Center.
