Always treating patients as people first—and working together as a team to explore every available option.
The good news
It’s true—the counties that make up eastern North Carolina have a cancer mortality rate that’s 15 percent above the rest of North Carolina and higher than the national average. This is largely because of age, lifestyle and other factors, but also because cancer in our region is so often detected in later stages, making it more challenging to treat. The good news? No one is better equipped to fight cancer successfully through education, prevention, treatment and support than the teams at Vidant Health.
The best care in the region
Our goal is to provide the highest quality care to the people we serve, and we’re not the only ones who recognize our efforts. The Vidant Medical Center cancer program is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, and the facility also received the commission’s Outstanding Achievement Award. Every day, we’re combining an expert staff of doctors, nurses and therapists with the most advanced technologies and treatments.
