About the Cancer Treatment Center
At St. Francis, we believe in working with each patient as an individual—we take great care to understand each person’s unique needs, concerns, and goals for treatment. We want you to be involved in making decisions about your care, and we provide information and education to help you make those choices. We also support all facets of your recovery—physical, emotional, and spiritual—to help you heal as a whole person in all aspects of your life.
The St. Francis Cancer Treatment Center has served central Nebraska since 1994 and is accredited by the Commission on Cancer from the American College of Surgeons with commendation for excelling in every aspect of cancer care. Here, patients have access to medical and radiation oncology treatment, a dedicated pharmacy, clinical trials, and a cancer rehabilitation team all in one location—a convenience not typically found in other cancer centers. In addition, the highly skilled team provides certified genetics counseling, tobacco cessation counseling, nurse navigation, survivorship services, an educational library, support groups, and educational seminars.
A Tradition of Excellence
The Cancer Treatment Center was the first and only cancer program to receive both the Clinical Trials Participation Award and the Community Oncology Research Grant by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and was the first in the state of Nebraska to offer RapidArc, the fastest, most accurate technology for radiation therapy. In 2014, the Cancer Treatment Center was again awarded for its excellence as a recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons.
