IU Health Goshen Center for Cancer Care
Integrated Care for Breast Cancer Patients
At Indiana University Health Goshen Center for Cancer Care, we’ve created a comprehensive breast cancer treatment program committed to your overall health. It’s a commitment that reaches from your initial diagnosis to recovery and beyond.
Throughout treatment, we use an integrated approach to cancer care where physicians, dietitians, naturopathic specialists and counselors all work together as a team. These specialists bring a number of disciplines – from leading-edge medical therapies and groundbreaking research to patient-specific clinical trials – to offer you the most complete care possible. Plus, you have access to a host of supportive services, including counselors, support groups and chaplains. Every day, this multidisciplinary team of specialists works together to share ideas and contribute to your individualized treatment plan. And in recovery, we teach you to maintain a healthier lifestyle to help prevent cancer from returning.
At IU Health Goshen Center for Cancer Care, we’ve created a place like no other. Working to heal you, not just treat your cancer.

About breast cancer
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women has a chance of getting breast cancer in her lifetime. And 192,370 were diagnosed with the disease in 2009. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer.
But there is good news. Although the incidence rate for breast cancer has remained steady, death rates for the disease have decreased. Thanks to early detection through regular screening and medical advancements, today nearly all women diagnosed with localized, or stage 1, breast cancer are survivors five years later. Advanced and individualized treatments – such as partial breast radiation and breast preservation surgery – are also helping to dramatically improve survival rates.
