After receiving a cancer diagnosis, it is normal to feel uncertain about the future and overwhelmed by the numerous tests, medications, and procedure required for your treatment. This is not something you need to go through alone, and the compassionate oncology team of Daviess Community Hospital can provide you with high quality cancer care from our convenient, close-to-home location in Washington, Indiana.

Prior to treatment, you may require surgery. DCH has the only Board-Certified Surgical Oncologist in the area, Dr. Jack Rostas III.

Cancer Patient Navigator

A Cancer Patient Navigator acts as a personal guide educator, liaison and advocate for the newly diagnosed cancer patient andtheir family. The navigator works with patients and families to help them at many points along the health care continuum. This may include education on the specific disease, insurance questions, finding physicians, explaining the treatment and care options available, and much more. There are many resources outside the hospital that can act as useful additions to your cancer treatment, and your navigator can guide you to them.
