The Hematology-Oncology service has been providing services ever since the foundation of this institution, under principles of quality and excellence in healthcare for adult and pediatric patients with benign and malignant blood diseases, and solid and hematological neoplasms.
It consists of a multidisciplinary team made up of sub-specialists in hematology-oncology, hematology, immunology, clinical oncology and radiotherapy oncology, as well as specialists in hematology-oncology training, being the main training center for hematology and oncology fellows of the ICESI University. The whole service is supported by a comprehensive support team consisting of general practitioners, nursing staff trained managing in cancer patients, and professionals in psychology and palliative care.
The centers of excellence strategy is aimed at having a high likelihood of success, by having a higher quality and being more efficient in the provision of health services. They can be defined as a group of healthcare professionals who are dedicated to a specific disease and deal with a large number of cases in a short period. Moreover, through continuous improvement, the learning curve is accelerated and maintained at levels difficult to achieve by competitors.
A Center of excellence is a professional culture characterized by the willingness to work as a team, in contrast to the traditional model of individual work. This process includes a periodic and systematic exposure of each professional to the scrutiny of their colleagues, collaborating among them to improve performance.
In Fundación Valle del Lili, women’s health is one of our essential mainstays. This is the reason why, for 17 years, efforts have been made to offer comprehensive care programs with timely, accurate and coordinated interventions, in order to reduce the disease incidence and disability caused by breast cancer in Valle del Cauca women.
Since 2016, Fundación Valle del Lili has created, for Colombian women and, especially, for Valle del Cauca women, the Center of excellence in Breast Cancer, in order to meet the health needs of women with breast cancer, integrating clinical practice and education, through a comprehensive, humanized and safe model with continuous innovation, based on the values governing our Institution. 24 doctors (specialists in breast pathology, medical epidemiologists and clinical management), nurses, nutritionists, psychologists, social work and administrative staff are part of the Center for Excellence in Breast Cancer.
