Minds, hearts and technology united against cancer.
Olathe Medical Center brings a unique weapon to your fight against cancer. We combine leading-edge cancer treatment with a caring, connected team of caregivers. It’s a collaboration of cross-disciplinary expertise that helps create a strategic blueprint of cancer treatment especially for you.
At every stage from diagnostics through treatment and ultimately follow-up, your progress is guided by not one physician or radiologist or oncologist, but by a collected panel of medical specialists. It’s Team You and it’s medical teamwork at its most effective.
Your current health status, your type of cancer, your personal wishes, plus our collective knowledge of the most advanced cancer technologies are all vital factors in a very individualized treatment plan designed for a positive outcome. We’re not simply fighting cancer. We’re specifically fighting yours.
Not just great minds against cancer. Great hearts, too.
You’re never alone in your cancer-fighting journey. We provide critical emotional support groups and resources both to patients and their families at every step. We’re accredited by the Commission on Cancer with commendation in the Community Hospital Cancer program category (only one in four hospitals nationwide receives this approval). What this means quite simply is that we put our hearts into your treatment as well as our expertise and technology.
