award (OAA) from the ACoS CoC. We are one of only 10 hospitals in the

and is the only HCA facility to have this distinction.

Leading Edge Cancer Care in San Jose
With a comprehensive range of cancer care services, state-of-the-art technology,
extensive range of board-certified cancer specialists, and outstanding
staff, Good Samaritan Hospital continues to be at the forefront of cancer care.
Some of the services we provide include:
- Surgical, medical and radiological modalities
- Dedicated Oncology Unit with all private rooms
- Outpatient Infusion Center
- CyberKnife Targeted Radiation
- Palliative care
- Survivorship Program
- Clinical Trials
- 5-day Breast Brachytherapy
- Oncology Nurse Coordinator
- Lung Cancer Screening Program
Our cancer services include leading-edge diagnostic procedures and treatments
in chemotherapy, radiation therapy and support services for patients and
families. Our new lung cancer screening services are especially innovative,
as we use a low-dose computed tomography scan (CT) to help detect lung
cancer early on. Lung cancer is one of the leading cancer deaths in the
nation, and those afflicted may not even be aware, as the symptoms can
be difficult to detect. Our San Jose hospital staff can discuss your risk
and help you get a referral for you to have your screening.
