WMC Cancer Resource Center

The effects of cancer are different for every patient and caregiver, and a diagnosis can bring on mixed emotions and overwhelming information. The Cancer Resource Center is a free and convenient way for area cancer patients and their caregivers to access resources that may assist them on their journey with cancer. One simple phone call will connect patients with WMC health professionals who will guide them to resources meeting each individual need. We are the connection. We can help.

Winneshiek Medical Center staff works to improve quality of life for patients needing specialized care, and much of that specialized care can be found close to home. The WMC Same Day Services department has compassionate staff who provide treatment for cancer and chronic illnesses and are certified by the Oncology Nursing Society. WMC also provides spiritual and bereavement support, social workers, nutritional counseling, home health and hospice care and benefit from partnerships with the American Cancer Society and Iowa Cancer Consortium.
