New cancer center is now open at the Howard County Hospital

Posted: Thu, Nov 5, 2020 3:26 PM

Regional Health Services of Howard County has opened its new Thomson-Jones Chemotherapy and Infusion Center.

Rural Americans are more likely to die from cancer-related illnesses due to lack of access to larger facilities because of challenges with travel.  The new cancer center at RHSHC will offer world-class cancer care to area residents. That's because the Cresco facility is collaborating with Cancer Treatment Centers of America's Chicago facility. Patients will receive coordinated care from both RHSHC and CTCA® providers. In addition, clinical telemedicine services will connect patients via real-time videoconferencing to CTCA Chicago oncologists for regular visits close to home. This collaboration marks the first CTCA coordinated cancer care alliance in the state of Iowa.
