Patient & Families
At The Ruesch Center, we understand how hard it can be to choose a hospital for cancer treatment. You’ve just received life-changing news, and now you have to decide how to handle it. The Ruesch Center is a global pioneer, unmatched by any other GI cancer program. Relentlessly fighting a smarter war against GI cancer by partnering with patients based on their unique needs, the Ruesch Center is committed to providing you with new innovative research, and providing the highest standard of care and individualized cures.
The Catholic, Jesuit concept of cura personalis, which translates as care of the whole person, suggests individualized attention to the needs of others, distinct respect for unique circumstances and concerns, and an appropriate appreciation for singular gifts and insights. This ideal, the founding principle of Georgetown University Medical Center, has special resonance for the scientific and educational missions of the university.
