Cancer Care

Dr. Baskin and patient

Nationally accredited cancer care close to home

At Williamson Health’s award-winning hospital, Williamson Medical Center, we offer a variety of preventative, diagnostic, treatment, survivorship and supportive services with a multidisciplinary approach to exceptional, patient-focused care.

World-Class Standards for
Most Types of Cancer

For the last decade, Williamson Medical Center has maintained an accreditation from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer. This national certificate is only awarded to facilities that are committed to the highest standard of cancer care who voluntarily submit to rigorous evaluation and take a multidisciplinary approach to care.

All these years later I'm still convinced Dr. Baskin and her crew are the very best. I cannot imagine getting higher quality care from a more caring staff anywhere in the country! It feels good to have confidence that they'll always take good care of me.


What makes Williamson Health’s cancer care unique?

A collaborative approach: Physicians across disciplines on the cancer care continuum – cancer surgeons, radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, hematologists and others – work together on treatment options, current evidence-based guidelines and clinical trial options. 

Community-focused care: We’re committed to these efforts as we provide cancer care for Williamson County:

  • Providing cancer screenings, community and worksite seminars, educational classes and support groups in our area – many of which are free.
  • Attendance by physicians and staff at bi-weekly, multi-disciplinary cancer conferences to discuss patient care, treatment and outcomes.
  • Maintaining a cancer registry and reporting all cancer cases diagnosed at our facility to the National Cancer Database, which allows us to identify cancer disparities in our community as well as manage and improve patient care and services.
  • Providing dedicated oncology navigators to guide patients and families throughout treatment.
