Cancer Care Team

We’ve found that the best approach to cancer care is based on a team approach. We’re united in patient care.

Compassionate Cancer Care

At the Merle M. Mahr Cancer Center, we not only work to fight the disease, we also offer you the knowledge and compassion you need to heal.

Cancer Care

The Merle M. Mahr Cancer Center provides a comfortable, caring atmosphere for cancer patients to receive chemotherapy or radiation treatments. The patients are our focus, and we strive to meet each patient’s individual needs as fully as possible.

Our highly qualified, specially trained staff provides state-of-the-art treatment. We work to provide each patient and their family with the knowledge needed to cope with cancer through education, follow-up, and support groups.
