Cancer Care


The Cancer Care Center at Redwood Area Hospital provides a variety of services to help you through your journey with cancer. We work with our patients and their caregivers to provide personalized cancer treatment options close to home, in a supportive environment.

Care Approach

Your treatment may require chemotherapy, targeted I.V. therapy, assistance with long-term port-a-catheters, or cancer education, all of which can take place close to home in our comfortable Cancer Care Center.

The Center is set up for patient comfort with privacy, heated recliners, and television. Appointments are scheduled weekdays during regular business hours.

We know that dealing with cancer can be overwhelming for everyone involved, so we work to provide ongoing education and support for patients and their families regarding throughout their disease and treatments.

Community Education
Cancer hits home for us every day as we get to know and support our patients. We strive to be an educational resource to the community for both cancer treatment and prevention.

Becoming a Patient

Cancer treatments are provided on an outpatient basis, while we work directly with your oncologist to provide the best treatment options.

Oncologist J. Michael Ryan, MD and Teri Larson, P.A. can work with oncologists from larger centers to bring your cancer treatment to Redwood Area Hospital. Patient appointments are held at Affiliated Community Medical Center in Redwood Falls each week with treatment services administered at the hospital’s Cancer Care Center.
