Robin, Here's a link to a thread where Jaques provides outside links + a link where our O Stoma Mia has posted links to various HIPEC threads:viewtopic.php?f=1&t=57534&p=467228&hilit=hipec#p467228
You can also do a search w/HIPEC in the search box. As far as losing the tabs on your computer, those tabs may still be in your "search history" for that day or that week or month if you click on "history" tab on your computer of sites visited.
Dr. Sugerbaker is in Washington D.C., not Washington State. I did a lot of research on behalf of my BFF & found hospitals that list their stats on HIPEC do so very sparingly. MSKCC has only been doing HIPEC about the last 15 years, surprisingly & Johns Hopkins was not recommended through contacts my BFF had.
Though my BFF could have had HIPEC locallyin OR, & a very experienced surgeon in WA State, the search was for a highly experienced surgeon, specialized in appendix cancer + a hospital that was highly experienced & set up for aftercare & PUBLISHED their stats. Not easy to find either one. I was able to find TWO hospitals that published their stats: Dr. Andrew Lowy/UCSD (San Diego) & Dr. David Bartlett/UPMC (Pittsburg). I also searched reviews such as Vitals.com + PubMed for various doctor's publications + YouTube videos of HIPEC conferences & other cancer forums. Dr. H. Richard Alexander Rutgers Cancer Institute/New Brunswick, NJ stood out to me as well.
It's really a tough decision b/c you want a great surgeon & hospital set up to handle any post-surgical complications & there was complications (AFIB) for my BFF as outlined in my thread about her experience. During initial consult BFF took a tour of hospital ward dedicated to cancer patients, in particular HIPEC patients had access to all of the latest & greatest equipment to handle any complication incl heart on the floor. So it's not that it was rated a top hospital, but their HIPEC patients got top care. Also look for good phone communication through staff & doc's NP. Was NOT good locally to even get an initial appointment for consult + locally they had only been doing HIPEC 4 yrs, however they were trained by Dr. Lowy & staff we found out after her surgery.

Staying w/your kids 2 hrs away may not be an option if the doc wants you staying near the hospital for a few wks post surgery as in my friend's case. It would make it easier for your kids to come to you however. You should be able to find someone well qualified on your side of the country. A short flight home sounds awfully good post HIPEC I must admit. BFF was 3 wks in San Diego before flying home so wasn't bad @ all according to her.
Best Wishes on your search. Keep us updated.
