CDH Welcomes Gynecological Oncologist Suzanne Bergen, M.D.
Winfield, Ill., February 24, 2006 —Suzanne Bergen, M.D., has joined the staff of Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) as a full-time, dedicated gynecological oncologist.
“Dr. Bergen’s reputation for compassion and her dedication to finding the very best course of treatment for each woman facing a cancer threat make her an outstanding addition to our staff, further reinforcing CDH’s mission to become a destination cancer center,” said Luke McGuinness, president and chief executive officer of Central DuPage Hospital. “From diagnosis to recovery, her expertise will provide cancer patients the opportunity to have a single caregiver throughout the delivery of care.”
Cancer care typically requires multiple specialists to provide the comprehensive care and therapies patients require to respond to the illness. Dr. Bergen has the unique training and focus to provide each patient with personalized care and treatment from diagnosis to cure. Dr. Bergen’s approach to care takes her patients through the entire cancer journey, treating gynecological cancers including cervical, ovarian and endometrial.
“Relationships are fundamental in cancer care, and that is what drew me to this specialty,” explains Dr. Bergen. “I don’t just perform surgical procedures. I want to be there to provide comprehensive care. Cancer patients need a point person who will be with them the whole way.”
With more than 17 years of experience in gynecological oncology, Dr. Bergen was most recently on staff at MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, Ill. She completed her residency at the University of Oklahoma and a fellowship in gynecological oncology at the University of California at Irvine. Dr. Bergen also has held faculty positions at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago and Loyola Medical Center in Maywood, Ill.
