Connections in Oncology Care
Jefferson Healthcare is proud to connect with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, an established state-of-the-art radiation oncology clinic located in Poulsbo on the Kitsap Peninsula. Providers see patients at Jefferson Healthcare in Port Townsend and arrange for them to receive treatment at the Poulsbo center. Follow up after treatment can be done in Port Townsend as well. FHCC is the only site west of Seattle to earn full accreditation from the American College of Radiology (ACR), the leading organization in establishing a quality standard for radiation oncology facilities. FHCC physicians are a team of nationally recognized experts working together to deliver the most effective radiation oncology treatment for their patients.
Oncology Certified Nursing Staff
75% of Jefferson Healthcare Infusion Nurses are Oncology Certified Nurses (OCN). Oncology nurse certification is one way nurses demonstrate their commitment to the art and science of patient-centered oncology care. Certification requires a nurse works in Oncology for a minimum of two years prior to studying for the national certification exam. Once certified, OCN Nurses complete annual training and competencies, in addition to a required number of Continuing Education hours to maintain certification.

Psychosocial services are provided by licensed social work staff, who specialize in providing comprehensive oncology support services and individual and family counseling services. From assisting with transportation to treatment and financial resources to dealing with the emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis, our caring and supportive social work team is dedicated to providing quality care for our patients. Support groups are available for patients and their families as well. See our events calendar for the next group meeting.
