Success Stories

Thousands of patients visit Steward® Centers for Cancer Care every year

Here are patient's reflections about their cancer care specialists and the services and care they received at our centers.

"Everyone at the Norwood Hospital Cancer Center was so very professional and so very kind.  It was a team, a family, and they made me feel more like a guest than a patient coming for treatment.  I couldn’t imagine driving a long distance to and from treatment – five days a week for over a month.  It was a gift to have this place so close to my home; it gave me peace of mind.  I know I made a good decision coming to the Norwood Hospital's center."

"Sometimes people think they won’t get good treatment in a local hospital, but I felt I had the best and most caring treatment possible at Norwood Hospital Cancer Center. If I had only gone for a screening five years earlier, I may have avoided colon cancer altogether.  But with the support of my family and friends, a positive attitude, and the kindness and concern of hospital staff, I got through the experience."

"Everyone that I encountered at Good Samaritan Radiation Center, starting from the registration desk, was very friendly and courteous. All of the therapists that treated me could not have been more helpful and were also very friendly! They made me feel very comfortable and at ease during the treatments. Would go back for treatments if needed-hopefully will never have to.”

Patient from East Bridgewater, MA
Good Samaritan Radiation Center

“The entire staff was extremely professional and courteous. They went out of their way to make me comfortable, and anytime I had to reschedule due to my work load, they worked with me.”

Patient from Taunton, MA
Good Samaritan Radiation Center

"You have a wonderful group of people working for you. Throughout my daily visits, I was always treated with kindness and respect.  Everyone from the receptionists to the radiation therapists, and your oncology nurse, are truly professionals."

Patient from Brockton, MA
Good Samaritan Radiation Center

“One does not have to go to Boston to receive quality treatment for cancer. You find it right here in Brockton at Good Samaritan Radiation Oncology Center. What stood out was the flexibility of scheduling both chemo and radiation on the same day.”

Patient from Easton, MA
Good Samaritan Radiation Center

"Only someone receiving the "CANCER" news knows the severity of emotions that follow. Dr. Han-Ting Lin held my hand, told me not to worry...and that she would stay with me. And that she did...I was not alone when this journey began...and every step of the way she has been 'with' me. I think all doctors could learn something from Dr. Lin. It's not just her knowledge and experience that makes her an outstanding doctor. It's the exceptional person she is, paired with her knowledge,  that makes her outstanding!"

Patient from Merrimack Valley, MA
Holy Family Hospital, William L. Lane Cancer Management Center

"All of the departments – outpatient services, oncology, laboratory, radiology and others – were wonderful.  They were very comforting and very aware of my situation and how I was feeling.  I couldn’t have asked for better people.  The oncologists at Morton are unbelievable, and the outpatient nurses are the best in the world.  All involved with my cancer care made me remember how important it was, and is, to keep a positive attitude, laugh and smile.  My faith in prayer and God became so incredibly important and helped during the hard times.  It gave me the strength to pass this on to other patients who ask how I did it without crying all the time.  Without advice from Morton’s staff, it would have been a lot harder."
