Multidisciplinary Cancer Programs
John Stoddard Cancer Center, a service of UnityPoint Health - Des Moines, provides patients and their families with a number of multidisciplinary teams made up of physicians, nurses, care coordinators, social workers, psychologists, and dietitians. Stoddard supports the team concept of patient care. We believe this approach leads to many benefits for patients and their families, including the combined expertise of all members of the multidisciplinary team. They work together to ensure that comprehensive, coordinated care is available to each patient and that each patient is uniquely treated for their type of cancer, its stage, lifestyle needs and overall health.
