The Cancer Center of Western Wisconsin exists because local healthcare leaders believe people experiencing cancer need and deserve easier access to high-end cancer prevention, treatment and support.
In an exceptional collaboration, the Cancer Center was created by Amery Regional Medical Center, Baldwin Area Medical Center, Hudson Hospital & Clinics, Osceola Medical Center, St. Croix Regional Medical Center of St. Croix Falls, and Westfields Hospital of New Richmond. Along with founding this network of care, each of these hospitals now offers patients advanced oncology services, using evidence-based protocols developed by Medical Oncology Director Gary Shapiro, M.D., who comes to the Cancer Center from the renowned Johns Hopkins University.
The Cancer Center’s state-of-the-art facility, located in New Richmond, is home for the Radiation Therapy Center of Western Wisconsin. Through a partnership with Minneapolis Radiology Oncology P.A., patients will receive radiation therapy treatments at this new facility.
With consistent oncology services, treatment and support available throughout Western Wisconsin, this collaboration extends the gift of time to patients – less time navigating travel and traffic, less time waiting for appointments and answers, and more time spent healing at home with family and friends or simply getting on with the day-to-day schedule of work and activities.
