The Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center is a proud affiliate of the UC Davis Cancer Care Network, an organization that unites five hospital-based cancer care centers dedicated to providing high quality care in community settings.

Partnership Benefits

Through the UC Davis Cancer Care Network program, the collaboration allows patients access to expertise of cutting edge cancer research and the latest clinical trials and diagnostic techniques. Another important feature of the network is virtual tumor boards where all network sites are linked through state-of-the-art telemedicine technology, giving oncologists and others involved in care, convenient opportunities to meet via real-time video conferencing, share medical information, and reach consensus on patient treatment plans. These sessions are also utilized to evaluate appropriate clinical trial opportunities and other specialty care.
