In the spring of 1997, St. Catherine Hospital opened the Cancer Center in Garden City. A significant expansion of the building was recently completed, creating a center of excellence for oncology care. The Cancer Center, located on the south side of the hospital campus, has expanded out, then upward, on the west side of the Cancer Center's present building, making it a two-story facility. The multimillion-dollar expansion was completed in 2016.
The free-standing center currently features diagnostic PET Scan services, a dual energy linear accelerator and a treatment planning system utilizing the latest in computer technology to aid in defining treatment areas while avoiding harm to at-risk organs. Heartland Cancer Center has brought the latest services and facilities for cancer care, including a Linear Accelerator, or TrueBeam, which can image tumors with high precision and deliver high energy treatment in a way that minimizes the amount of radiation delivered to healthy tissue.
We offer the latest in chemotherapy and radiation therapy to improve tumor control, reduce side effects due to better organ visualization, and enhance treatment techniques for optimal outcomes. In addition, St. Catherine Hospital has partnered with the renowned Midwest Cancer Alliance through KU, to increase access to the latest cancer treatment discoveries though a wide variety of clinical trials.
The patient's experience is enhanced through multi-disciplinary teamwork including spiritual, mental, nutritional, and rehabilitative services. Our team works together to provide quality care for the whole person, body, mind and spirit.
