Grand Island cancer center offers radiation therapy
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Radiation therapy is now available at another cancer center in Grand Island.
Mary Lanning Healthcare Tuesday announced that with a new state-of-the-art linear accelerator, the Morrison Cancer Center in Grand Island is now able to provide radiation therapy on-site.
Dr. Randy Duckert is the radiation oncologist for MCC in Grand Island and Hastings. Dr. Duckert has around 25 years of experience in radiation oncology.
“The addition of radiation therapy rounds out the comprehensive list of services MCC is providing at the Grand Island Regional Medical Center’s Prairie Commons,” said David Jones, MCC Director.
MCC in Grand Island offers medical and radiation oncology, plus social work, nurse navigation, occupational therapy, nutrition counseling, pharmacy and specialty surgery consults.
“Providing several services in one location means patients receive a continuum of care with everyone working together toward better health,” Jones said.
Because MCC provides the same type of comprehensive services in Hastings, the providers and staff are accustomed to working together with the patients and families to meet all of their needs, Jones said.
Providers at MCC in Grand Island include Dr. Duckert; Dr. M. Sitki Copur, Medical Director; Dr. Soe Min Tun; and Leslie Robbins, APRN.
Radiation therapy is also offered at CHI St. Francis hospital in Grand Island.
