Despite the spectacular advancements that have been made in prevention, early detection and treatment, it remains among the most dreaded diagnosis a person can receive. Cancer is not one disease, but many. And it touches us all.
Fortunately, we live in a community with outstanding cancer care – nationally recognized for its clinical and program excellence, including advanced treatments in radiation and medical oncology, the latest surgical options, superior nursing care, and a wide offering of social support and integrated complementary therapies.
We are thankful to those who help us elevate this care through environments designed to soothe and promote healing, accommodate the essential support of a patient’s family and friends, while bringing together physician specialists and other care providers to provide seamless treatment for cancer patients.
Research has long linked the environment and its role in healing of mind, body and spirit. The new rooftop garden gives patients, visitors and staff access to elements of nature—serving as a place of solace and healing beyond the patient room.

This trail will provide patients with a place to safely practice mastering common obstacles present in the everyday outdoor environment while still assisted by our skilled rehabilitation team. This is a special opportunity to add a unique feature to the new Orthopaedic Center and help patients get back into motion and on the road to recovery one step at a time.
Harrison Medical Center’s Pediatric Rehabilitation Department is Kitsap County’s only provider of occupational, physical, and speech therapies for kids age 0-18, that also accepts Medicaid payments for care (the payer for 64% of our patients).
Through this program, these children can learn how to use a variety of adaptive equipment in the clinic setting so they can have access to them in their homes. Once the child has the equipment, their world changes significantly. For example, for a child to go from being carried or moved in a stroller (controlled by an adult) to standing upright in a walker, moving under their own volition—this child is now able to go and explore where he or she wants to go.
Any woman can get cancer. The key to survival is early detection through important screening exams, such as mammograms and pap smears. Unfortunately, many women in our community lack adequate health insurance, and are often diagnosed with cancer at later stages when it is harder to treat.
A new Women’s Health Screening Fund has been created by the Harrison Medical Center Foundation that will help women access potentially life-saving screenings for breast and cervical cancer. The fund extends the safety net that already exists in our community by working with local, contracted providers of the Breast, Cervical and Colon Health Program (BCCHP).
