CEDAR RAPIDS—April 15, 2010—Iowa Blood & Cancer Care of PCI has announced a name change as of April 2011. The practice, which joined Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa in 2009, will now be known as Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa—Hematology & Oncology. Unchanged, are the physicians, staff and quality care that the group has provided since founded in 2002.
Located at 855 A Avenue in Cedar Rapids, the practice has a diverse array of expertise in oncology and hematology. The physician and nurse team provide compassionate and comprehensive programs for patients with cancer and disorders of the blood.
Built upon the core purpose of bringing hope to patients' lives and improving their overall well-being, the care team works closely with patients and their families to maintain a better quality of life after diagnosis. The team manages care through comprehensive prevention, detection and treatment services including clinical trials and supportive care.
This patient-first ethic is exemplified through the Balance™ patient education and support system. The whole-patient approach provides a wide variety of support resources that are available including everything from information on treatment plans and potential side effects to integrative therapies such as massage and nutrition counseling.
In addition, the group recently became the first oncology practice in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City corridor, and the third in the State of Iowa, to be recognized by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification Program, an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).
More information about the practice can be found at their new online location www.pcofiowa.com/oncology.
