Cancer Answers. And a Clear Path Forward.

Every person's journey with cancer is unique. Your cancer is not like anyone else's, and your treatment shouldn't be either. At Olathe Health, we are focused on you, and we have the most comprehensive treatments, cutting-edge technology, supportive services and resources available.

Cancer Care (Oncology)

The Olathe Health cancer care team has expertise in the treatment of all types of cancer and blood disorders. When it comes to developing plans for the diagnosis, treatment and ongoing emotional support of our oncology patients and their families, we believe in working as a team. This multidisciplinary approach—combining the opinions of expert doctors in medicine, surgery, medical and radiation oncology and reconstructive surgery—is vital to the management of your cancer treatment. We put our hearts into your treatment, as well as our expertise and technology.

Our New Cancer Center

Olathe Health will open its comprehensive, state-of-the-art Cancer Center in early 2018 on the Olathe Medical Center campus. The center will integrate most outpatient cancer services into one location, enabling the many physicians and staff members who diagnose and treat cancer to collaborate as a team, helping patients and families battle the disease. Its location will allow patients, and their families, in our service area who are facing a cancer diagnosis to continue their care close to home. Our new Cancer Center will include some of the following areas:

Radiation Therapy Suite
New, state-of-the-art radiation therapy technology, including a linear accelerator with stereotactic capabilities

Infusion Suite
Specialized infusion stations for the delivery of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, biotherapy or hormone therapy

Appearance Center and Boutique
Comfort and cosmetic items

Relaxation Courtyard
Beautiful landscaping elements and outdoor seating in comfortable areas

Cancer Screenings

  • Mammograms are specialized X-rays of the breast used to identify changes in the breast tissue. It's used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women who either have breast problems, such as a lump, pain, or nipple discharge, as well as for women who have no breast complaints. Olathe Medical Center also offers 3D mammography (also called breast tomosynthesis).

    Learn more about mammography.
  • A colonoscopy is an exam of the large intestine that can detect precancerous growths early, before they turn into cancer. It can also lead to an early diagnosis of colon cancer, when treatment is most successful.

  • A low-dose CT lung scan is the latest advancement in the early detection of lung cancer. In this test, a series of detailed pictures of the lungs allows radiologists to determine if potential lunch cancer exists. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. As with most cancers, early detection of lung cancer is critical to successful treatment and improved survival.

  • OMC offers a variety of low-cost preventive wellness screenings, including cancer screenings, in one convenient location with no appointment necessary. Regular health screenings and preventive exams can help you learn about your current health status and identify health risks that could lead to illness and serious disease in the future.

    The cancer screenings include prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests (a test for prostate cancer that detects the presence of a protein in the blood produced by prostate cells) and fecal occult blood tests, which checks stool samples for hidden blood. Blood in the stool may indicate colon cancer or polyps in the colon or rectum.

    These screenings are done in Outpatient Services at Olathe Medical Center in The Doctors Building 1, Ste. 150, Monday through Friday between 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. They can be reached at 913-324-8655.
