The Stormont-Vail Cancer Center is a specialty medical clinic within the Stormont-Vail HealthCare network, providing outpatient services to children, adolescents and adults who have a diagnosis of cancer or blood disorder. The 31,500-square-foot facility is located at 1414 S.W. Eighth Ave., just northeast of the main Stormont-Vail campus.
The center, opened in December 2006, consolidates all outpatient cancer services of Stormont-Vail and Cotton-O'Neil. It has the latest in technology, including one of the few Trilogy Image-Guided Radiotherapy linear accelerator systems in the state of Kansas and a PET/CT.
In addition, the center houses the Cotton-O'Neil pediatric and adult medical oncology practices, an infusion center and a clinical research center. There are also ancillary services for patients offered such as genetic screening, nutritional counseling, social work, pastoral care, and an outpatient palliative care program. Nurse navigators provide assistance to patients and families as they move from diagnosis through treatment.
The Stormont-Vail Cancer Center received accreditation as a comprehensive cancer program by The Commission on Cancer in 2009. The center also achieved accreditation for its Radiation Therapy services through the American College of Radiology (ACR).
