In the spring of 1997, St. Catherine Hospital opened
The Cancer Center at a cost of $4.5 million. The free-standing
center features diagnostic PET Scan services, dual energy
linear accelerator, a simulator for pre-treatment testing
and a 3-D treatment planning program utilizing the latest

while avoiding harm to at-risk organs.

side effects due to better organ visualization, and enhances
treatment techniques. Additionally, we offer isotope
therapy treatment along with chemotherapy and on-site
