Cancer Care

You don't have to compromise anything when you choose FHN for cancer treatment.

LEADING TECHNOLOGY. FHN now has an Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) radiation machine and a four-dimensional CT scanner for radiation planning. IGRT allows greater accuracy so a higher dosage of radiation can be used for better treatment success. The 4-D CT scanner detects the smallest movements during treatment - even breathing - and allows better views of the affected area. With this equipment we now are able to offer our patients Volumetric Modulated ARC Therapy (VMAT), also called SmartArc or RapidArc radiation therapy, before any of the Rockford hospitals.

LOCAL CONVENIENCE. Cancer treatment isn't just about the technology. Being within a 30-minute drive for most of our patients helps them avoid long drives when they're not feeling well and makes it easier for friends and family to help with transportation and moral support. And our affiliation with the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC) gives us local access to all of the resources of the UWCCC, including real-time videoconferencing.

LOVING CARE. The 17 healthcare professionals at the Cancer Center, who are regularly recognized – by their patients - for their compassionate care, bring all of these benefits together into cancer treatment that's second to none.

YOU DESERVE ALL THREE. Take comfort in our care. For more information, call 1-877-6000-FHN (1-877-600-0346) ext. 984, or visit our Cancer Treatment specialty page.
