8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

Island Health has been partnering with North Puget Oncology (NPO) for medical oncology services for nearly 20 years and has appreciated a strong, collaborative relationship. Recent staffing and recruiting challenges have led NPO to consolidate services. NPO will no longer be able to staff their physicians at Island Cancer Care after August 3, 2023.

Island Health has been working diligently over the last several weeks to find a partner to keep medical oncology services local. We are currently working with each patient to transition their care to either NPO in Mount Vernon or another regional cancer care center. We will continue to provide infusion services while we transition to a new medical oncology partner. We anticipate sharing more details in the coming weeks.

During this transition, Island Cancer Care’s Nurse Navigators will assist each patient with their care, coordinating services and appointments and working with your oncologist to provide support.

The Island Cancer Care Nurse Navigators can be reached by calling the triage office: 360.588.2047, or by calling 360.299.4200 and asking for the Nurse Navigator.
