Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital
At Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital, skilled and respected medical oncology teams provide expert diagnosis, treatment planning and care for patients with all forms of cancer. As cancer specialists, oncologists stay abreast of emerging therapies and may direct patients to clinical trials of the latest developments.
Cancer care is delivered in a hospital setting or through outpatient services depending upon patient's needs including:
- Medical oncology services offers 24-hour-a-day multidisciplinary care for the adult oncology patient with acute leukemia, malignant lymphoma and various solid tumors that require complex chemotherapy or treatment interventions.

In addition to medical care, Sutter provides valuable information and assistance to patients and their loved ones. Through direct care or referral to other Sutter Cancer Center and community resources, staff members assist each patient and family to access services and information quickly and easily.
