When a patient’s physician or surgeon suspects cancer, the patient is referred within just days to his or her local hospital’s on-site HealthPartners oncologist. Using the same protocols throughout the Cancer Center of Western Wisconsin’s network, the oncologist and medical team create a personalized treatment plan for the patient.
When chemotherapy is prescribed, the patient receives that at his or her local hospital. When radiation therapy is needed, that service is provided at a facility in New Richmond, using the newest technology available anywhere in the world.
Faster treatment given in a familiar, comfortable setting gives peace of mind to each patient and family.
