Cancer care, close to home

When cancer strikes close to home, it’s nice to know you can receive care and therapy at Orange City Area Health System. Our Infusion Center provides chemotherapy/biotherapy so you don’t have to travel far for compassionate, quality, personalized care. The Infusion Center is open M-F 8am-4pm, offering treatments for Cancer, Rheumatoid arthritis, Osteoporosis, Crohn’s Disease, IV antibiotics, and much more! Being open five days a week has expanded our ability to monitor outpatient schedules and get to know our patients on a more personal level. Our infusion center staff work closely with physicians from all area hospitals to take care of our local patients’ outpatient needs. Oncologists Dr. Rhada Rao and Dr. Stephen Kahanic from the June E. Nylen Cancer Center / Siouxland Hematology-Oncology are on-site three times a month to consult with patients.
Also, if you or a loved one are looking for headwear during chemotherapy treatment, the Gift Garden gift shop located on our main campus has a selection of Chemo Beanies®. Designed by sisters in treatment for breast cancer, the Chemo Beanie provides an easy, slip-on solution to the burden of baldness during chemotherapy. Learn more here.
