Types of cancer care we offer

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, there are many important issues to consider and decisions to make. Above all, you want the best possible treatment, and we strive to provide that alongside compassionate, high-quality care. In fact, our partnership with Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute gives you access to the highest quality of cancer care in the communities surrounding Mt. Juliet and Hermitage.

Cancer care

Our cancer care program gives you access to:

  • A multispecialty team approach to coordinate the best treatment options available
  • A cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers and treatment results, offering lifelong patient follow-up
  • Cancer-related information, education and support
  • Ongoing monitoring
  • Information about ongoing and upcoming clinical trials
  • Additional cancer services at any of our TriStar Health family of hospitals

Cancer treatment

Cancer can take many forms, which means your treatment plan should too. Depending on the type and stage of your cancer, you may undergo surgery or radiation therapy. We also offer pain management and cancer rehabilitation services to help you recover after treatment.

Additionally, we provide genetic testing to tell if a mutation runs in your family. Knowing this is useful because there are options available to help lower your cancer risk or help detect cancer at an earlier, more treatable stage.

Cancer support

We partner with our community to support patients and families affected by cancer. From our dedicated nurse navigators to cancer support groups, we are here to make sure you are not alone in your journey. Additionally, we offer counseling, discharge planning, hospice care, nutritional assistance and spiritual support.

Our breast cancer support group

Look Good, Feel Better, sponsored by the American Cancer Society and TriStar Summit Medical Center, is a local support group designed to help women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

For information or to register, call the American Cancer Society at (800) 227-2345.

Recognition for cancer care

We have done everything we can to ensure your cancer care at our facility is exceptional, and we have been awarded a special designation for these efforts.

Designated high-quality cancer care

The Commission on Cancer (CoC) Approvals Program encourages hospitals, treatment centers and other facilities to improve their quality of patient care through various cancer-related programs. These programs are concerned with prevention, early diagnosis, pretreatment evaluation, support services and end-of-life care.

Only one in four hospitals that treat cancer receive this special approval. TriStar Summit Medical Center is one of these hospitals. This is partly because we recognize the quality of comprehensive cancer care available and indicate a commitment to providing patients access to various medical specialists who are involved in cancer diagnosis and treatment.
