Patient Centered Care

At Ironwood Women’s Centers the goal is to give the patient the highest quality of care possible.  Cancer is a complicated disease that requires a multidisciplinary approach that treats all aspects of the patient.  Every woman needs to have an individualized cancer treatment designed and orchestrated by a team of cancer specialists.

We are one of the few centers in the Phoenix area to offer comprehensive cancer care in one location with the ability to offer multispecialty appointments on the same day.

We offer genetic screening from our certified genetic counselor to help women determine if they’re at high risk for certain cancers.  Positive genetic markers also help us encourage more frequent screening.  This information helps develop our appropriate treatment plan as early as possible.

Our gynecological oncologists, breast surgeons, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists collaborate together to give patients the most current and effectual treatment plan possible.

 

Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers are Quality Cancer Care Certified

QCP validates processes that demonstrate a practice’s commitment to quality.  The QOPI® Certification Program (QCP™), an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), was launched in 2010 to recognize medical oncology practices that are committed to delivering the highest quality of cancer care.

QCP evaluates an individual practice’s performance in areas that affect patient care and safety. QCP builds on ASCO’s Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI), a voluntary program to help medical oncology and hematology/oncology practices evaluate the quality of the care they provide to patients.

To achieve QOPI Certification, our offices participated in QOPI and met or exceeded a benchmark score on measures that compared the quality of its care against national standards. We undergo an on-site review and peer review by a select team of oncology professionals, such as physicians and nurses, at least once every three years.  Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers are QOPI Certified and are committed to delivering the highest quality of cancer care.
