Deaconess Cancer Services
Deaconess has long been one of the Midwest’s leading providers of complete, compassionate cancer services. With our advanced diagnostic equipment, we can detect cancer in its earliest stages when it is most treatable. Deaconess also offers state-of-the-art treatment options to help patients realize successful cancer treatment.
We understand that cancer services are more than complex technology and the latest medications. Cancer treatment is a holistic experience, involving the mind, body and spirit. From the calm, soothing atmosphere of the Chancellor Center for Oncology to our vast selection of educational and complementary services, Deaconess offers a wide variety of choices to help you through cancer diagnosis and treatment— physically, spiritually and emotionally.
