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.
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.
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.
In some cases, patients choose to have their care referred to oncologist Louay Hanna, MD, who typically sees patients on Wednesdays at Affiliated Community Medical Center – Redwood Falls, with treatments provided at Redwood Area Hospital.
In other cases, patients may choose to continue seeing their preferred oncologist out of town and their doctor simply sends treatment orders to Redwood Area Hospital.
