Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Care Multispecialty Team

The Spectrum Health Breast Cancer Multispecialty Team is designed to get you to treatment faster and with more input into your care plan. A team of specialists evaluates each newly diagnosed breast cancer patient and together, in one day, they develop a treatment plan.

All in One Place, All in One Day

We bring a whole team of cancer specialists together in one place for one appointment with you and your family. In a single appointment at Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion, you will:

  • Meet with the area’s finest surgical, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy experts
  • Discuss the best treatment options for you and get answers to all your questions 
  • Have a written treatment plan by appointment's end

This team approach saves you and your family the anxiety and uncertainty of waiting days and weeks between individual appointments. It lets you focus your energy on what’s important: getting well.
