Cancer Center

Our comprehensive, state-of-the-art cancer center integrates most outpatient cancer services into one location, enabling physicians and staff members who diagnose and treat cancer to collaborate as a team.

The Main Lobby

The lobby contains pieces from a local art consulting company that coordinated a curated collection using evidence-based design principles of art in healthcare. Beautiful, well-designed artwork can make all the difference in creating a lower-stress environment and providing positive distraction for patients.

Conference Room

Our conference room has the latest in AV capabilities. This dedicated space allows our team of cancer specialists to review each patient’s diagnosis and create a comprehensive treatment plan. It is also be used for support groups and other meetings.

Infusion Suite

The infusion suite includes 18 patient stations for the delivery of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, biotherapy or hormone therapy. From TVs and in-pillow speakers to complimentary drinks and snacks, the stations provide a comfortable environment for patients receiving treatment. There is also a community infusion station for patients who prefer to socialize while receiving treatment.

Linear Accelerator

The linear accelerator is one of the most advanced radiation technologies available today. It delivers high-energy radiation beams with improved accuracy at faster rates to cancerous areas in the body, reducing the amount of time the patient spends receiving each treatment. In some cases, patients may receive fewer total treatment sessions than planned because of its advanced accuracy and speed.

Cancer Screenings

  • Mammograms are specialized X-rays of the breast that identify changes in breast tissue. We use mammography to detect and diagnose breast disease in women who either have breast issues, such as a lump, pain or nipple discharge, as well as for women who have no known breast complaints. We offer 3D mammography (also called breast tomosynthesis). All mammograms are read by fellowship-trained breast radiologists.

    Learn more about mammography.

  • Colonoscopy screening detects changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon) and rectum by inserting a long, flexible tube into the rectum. Special instruments can be passed through the colonoscope to biopsy (sample) or remove any suspicious-looking growths such as polyps, if needed.

  • Low-dose CT scanning is the most successful approach to detecting lung cancer in those at risk. This type of advanced X-ray shows such detailed images that can reveal abnormalities as small as a grain of rice. Finding a tumor when it’s smaller means the cancer is less likely to have spread, and also improves the chances of effective treatment.

  • We provide low-cost preventive wellness exams, including cancer screenings, with no appointment necessary. Regular health screenings and preventive exams can help you understand your current health status and identify potential health risks that could lead to future illness and disease.

    Among the cancer blood tests we provide are prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests for prostate cancer and fecal occult blood tests for colorectal cancer  

    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.
