The Comprehensive Community Cancer Program of Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System offers people with cancer a complete, local resource for education, prevention, detection, treatment and support. With a team of highly skilled oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, nurses and other dedicated health care professionals, state-of-the-art equipment for detection and treatment, and access to advanced clinical trials and consultations, people can receive world-class cancer care while staying close to home, family and friends. Included are some additional services our Comprehensive Community Cancer Program offers our patients.

Pain Management

The comfort of our patients is a primary concern. Mitigating pain generally requires that we analyze the type of pain experienced and the cause of the discomfort.

Palliative Care

Sadly, there are times when all of the technology and medical knowledge in the world cannot give every patient a more optimistic diagnosis. That does not mean that pain and suffering must become part of the equation.


The Comprehensive Community Cancer Program at Salinas Valley Memorial has long recognized the value of complementary medicine services, such as Reiki. The benefits include; pain reduction, symptom and stress management, a greater ability to relax, focus, cope and sleep, and relief from fatigue and nausea that often accompany treatments and improved energy levels.

Art & Music Therapy

The goal of the Art & Music Therapy program is to help the patient and the patient's support network deal openly and honestly with the physical and emotional changes resulting from a cancer diagnosis.
