Introducing our newly launched Survivorship Clinic at your Tri-Cities Cancer Center and our new Survivorship Provider, Lisa C.S. Rootvik, ARNP.

Overcoming cancer and achieving survivorship is a milestone accomplishment. But when treatment is over many patients ask, “what’s next?” Utilizing more than a decade of experience in oncology, as well as the latest research and national recommendations, Lisa is creating a comprehensive Survivorship Program for our entire region. Our survivorship clinic provides survivorship care to patients of the Tri-Cities Cancer Center, as well as provide support to all three local hospital systems and their oncology patients.

In our Survivorship Clinic, Lisa works with patients to:

  • Manage and identify side effects of treatment
  • Discuss potential long-term complications from treatment
  • Educate patients on how to avoid, as well as detect, a cancer recurrence
  • Encourage the development of healthy habits for overall health and well-being.

In short, our Survivorship Clinic assists patients in achieving the best possible quality, and length, of life after treatment.

The Survivorship Clinic provides the bridge between a patient’s oncology team and their primary care provider. This is a critical element of survivorship. Lisa works closely with each patient, and their providers, to be sure everyone has a good understanding of the patient’s unique needs.

Life after cancer just got even better. Ask your provider to refer you to the Survivorship Clinic at the Tri-Cities Cancer Center.

“I have chosen to work with cancer patients throughout my entire career because caring for this population is my passion and unequivocally my calling in life.
Because cancer patients are far more than just their cancer diagnosis, treating each patient holistically and helping patients achieve their own life goals are the backbones of my practice in oncology.”
