A Leading-Edge Cancer Program

It would be challenging to find anyone whose life has not been touched by cancer, either as a patient, friend, or relative. Millions of people are currently battling the disease or have in the past, and millions of new cases of cancer are diagnosed yearly. Fortunately for our patients, world-class cancer care is available right here at Marin General Hospital – learn more about the awards and accreditations our Cancer Institute has received. We offer the advantages of an academic cancer program, delivered in a more intimate, neighborhood setting.

  • A Remarkably Collaborative Team of Experts
    All of our specialists are board-certified, and many trained at top medical schools including Stanford and UCSF. They have chosen to practice at Marin General Hospital because our small size and patient-centric culture allows them to spend more time with their patients. Because cancer treatment usually involves multiple approaches, our specialists collaborate and coordinate with each other so that our patients have an entire team of experts concentrating on their care. 
  • Outstanding Outcomes 
    By integrating the highest level of care with rehabilitation, supportive care, and holistic complementary services, our Cancer Institute achieves outstanding results.
  • Technology
    We are committed to maintaining a technological edge, with truly state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Our radiation oncology suite has the latest technologies and we currently have some of the nation’s leading diagnostic equipment, including digital mammography. Computer-assisted diagnosis software is used on all mammograms.
