The Region's Leader In Cancer Care

Since 1995, experience, dedication and caring are the three words most associated with the Center for Cancer Care at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center. The Center for Cancer Care is the region's leading provider of cancer care and hope.

The Center for Cancer Care houses almost all outpatient cancer services in one area so cancer patients and their loved ones do not have to endure the emotional and physical stress of making multiple office visits to several locations.

OSF Saint Anthony was the first health care provider in the Rockford area to provide our patients high-dose rate brachytherapy, which uses radiation internally to attack tumors, prostate seed implants, as well as genetic risk assessment programs for breast and colon cancer.

The physicians, nurses, medical technicians and other healthcare staff at the Center for Cancer Care are some of the best in oncology care. They are talented, skilled, hard working and knowledgeable professionals dedicated to providing world-class medical care, as well as the emotional and spiritual support needed to defeat cancer.
