The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.
The Patient Care Coordinator I is a member of a dynamic team focused on coordinating all aspects of patient care. The role provides continuity of care by ensuring a smooth transition between care settings and by developing a trusted relationship with patients to identify and assist with each patients individual needs that may arise related to the care they receive.
The Patient Care Coordinator will be part of the SCCA Wellness Center team. The SCCA Wellness Center is an extension of the South Lake Union clinic, located on the adjoining Fred Hutch campus. Patients are generally low acuity and services are primarily focused in cancer prevention and survivorship related care.
The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance was incorporated in 1998 as a separate, jointly governed non-profit that included the cancer programs of three partners. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a cancer treatment center that unites doctors from Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s. The purpose of this organization is to provide state-of the-art patient and family centered care; support the conduct of cancer clinical research and education; enhance access to improved cancer interventions; and advance the standard of cancer care regionally and beyond. The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northwest, and according to the National Cancer Data Base, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance patients in general have better survival rates than patients treated at other cancer treatment centers.
