Outstanding Survival Rates for Rose Cancer Center Patients
Sarah Cannon at Rose Cancer Center is proud of the fact that our physicians and Rose health professionals are helping patients live longer. We measure this by looking at our five-year survival rates, or whether a patient is living up to five years following treatment.
Sarah Cannon at Rose Cancer Center bests the five-year survival average of cancer patients still living five years after treatment versus other Colorado facilities.
Additionally, we measure many other evidence-based guidelines on key cancer program measures.
Commitment to Patients’ Lives After Cancer
Part of our dedication to helping patients live longer, fuller lives following cancer treatment is helping them adjust to a “new normal” in their lives following cancer—something that varies by each patient. Rose’s three dedicated Oncology Nurse Navigators work with their patients to create individualized Survivorship Care Plans, a long-term plan for survivorship that provides patients and their loved ones additional information, resources and tools to help successfully transition to a life after cancer.
Lifetime Follow-Up for Rose's Cancer Patients
Each year, we treat thousands of cancer patients—each with his or her own medical history. While we cannot guarantee the same results for all patients, we do work with each patient to help them obtain the best outcome possible. To help us track the survivorship of our patients, we look to the Rose Cancer Registry, which tracks long-term survivorship of our patients.
