Comprehensive cancer care delivered in a caring and comfortable environment

From lung cancer, to kidney cancer, to skin cancer, our Oncology/Hematology patients can expect comprehensive cancer care and treatment delivered in a caring and comfortable environment by our network of dedicated staff at Hematology Oncology Northwest and Rainier Hematology-Oncology.

Additionally, breast cancer cases are presented at a breast cancer conference where top radiologists, surgeons, radiation and medical oncologists, and supporting staff meets together to review individual patients and outline the best options for their treatment. We also help connect you with other resources for women with breast cancer available in our communities.

Each of our clinics are staffed by board-certified oncologists/hematologists, specially trained oncology nurses and administrative staff, and has a full-service clinic offering chemotherapy treatments and other types of infusions, and laboratory services.

There are also many opportunities to participate in cutting-edge clinical trials that offer patients the chance to receive promising new therapies otherwise unavailable.

Call (253) 428-8700 to schedule an appointment.

Outpatient Infusion Services

If your doctor has prescribed an intravenous form of treatment for you, you can rest assured that we have a dedicated team of well trained and specialty certified nurses who will be able to provide you this therapy seven days a week. Our offices have infusion room areas within the clinics that are designed to maintain your comfort during your treatments with us. Some treatments may only take a few minutes, while other treatments may take several hours.

Admixture Services

All of the intravenous medications that your physician prescribes for you will be given to you from our admixture service. These staff members provide these medications to the nursing staff. If you are a patient of ours that is receiving your treatment at home, the Admixture Department will prepare your medication for you on a weekly basis or teach you how to prepare it. The admixture staff helps facilitate your treatment and are available to answer any questions you may have.

Laboratory Services

Many of the decisions about the type and amount of intravenous therapy you receive will be based on laboratory work ordered by your physician. Or, your physician may use these test results to determine the progress being made in treating your disease process. For your convenience, our clinic has a full-service laboratory to complete these tests for you.

Comfort therapies are non-medical, non-invasive approaches to providing comfort that work side by side with conventional medical care. Learn more

COVID-19 NOTICE

November 16, 2020 Update

IMPORTANT: NO VISITORS
During these difficult times we are making every effort to keep our patients and staff safe from COVID 19, we appreciate your patience and understanding with the changes you may have seen within our practice.

We strive to protect our patients and staff as much as we possibly can from any exposure on our premises.  NWMS has implemented a system wide policy that does not allow anyone in the building that is not a patient and everyone must wear an NWMS provided mask over their mouth and nose during their time on our premises.  This is to protect our vulnerable patients from the unforeseen possibility of exposure to COVID 19 which can be transmitted through aerosol droplets.  Sadly, we have had patients that have died from the complications of COVID 19, which is both devastating and preventable.

We offer a virtual visit option for family, friends, and companions to participate in the care of our patients through Zoom.  Our staff will assist you with every step of the login process and invite you to participate in real time from your vehicle or designated safe space in our building. Please contact us at 253-428-8700 to set this up.

The following offices are temporarily closed:

  • Bonney Lake
  • Federal Way

If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, please make sure to contact us via phone prior to your appointment. You may also contact us for any additional questions by calling our office at (253) 428-8700.
