Our Mission

In this episode, we sat down with Green Bay Oncology’s founders – Dr. Paul Koch, Dr. Skip McGovern, Dr. Jules Blank, and Dr. Gerald Bayer again as well as Dr. Tony Jaslowski, a practicing oncologist and hematologist at Green Bay Oncology. We discuss how a service and ethics team approach was established from the very beginning of our practice. We discuss how we continue to work toward keeping that ethos and culture alive and thriving at GBO today. We discuss how they promoted teamwork, camaraderie, and equality during the organization’s infancy and their shared values for putting the patient’s needs first before focusing on the bottom line. We discuss our mission to maintain an honest, compassionate practice of care and how this mission has been recognized as our practice’s  – and our founders’ – legacy. We also discuss how clinical research trials began at GBO and how cancer research has evolved over the last three decades.

To be an oncologist is an incredible privilege. You meet people at one of the worst times of their lives, and they allow you to care for them. Sometimes you cure their cancer, and sometimes, they succumb to the disease – or something in between. But one thing remains consistent in our careers as a physician – It’s an incredible privilege to help our patients.

Caring for our patients is a gift they give to us. It’s something our founders at Green Bay Oncology have never forgotten. And it’s something every oncologist should remember.

“Standardization of care is the ultimate vision for where we want this to go so everybody can have the best results.”
– Dr. Skip McGovern
