Care Philosophy

Penrose Cancer Center Radiation Therapy incorporates comprehensive options, leading-edge technologies and world-renowned physicians for advanced treatment of cancer. * Radiation treatment plans and technologies are customized to each patient's individual needs, incorporating a highly effective dose of radiation to destroy cancer cells while sparing surrounding healthy tissue. * Depending on the location, size and type of tumor, treatment may include one or more therapies featuring various forms of external beam radiation to achieve the best outcomes for our patients. In addition to traditional radiation treatments, IMRT, Seed Implants and Brachytheraphy, PCC offers the only CyberKnife(r) treatment in Southern Colorado. With pinpoint accuracy, it attacks cancer from all angles using a focused beam of radiation and can treat tumors previously thought to be inoperable. This ultimate cancer-fighting technology can attack hard-to-reach tumors anywhere in the chest area as well as metastatic disease. This non-surgical alternative to cancer treatment involves no incisions, anesthesia or inpatient hospital stay , shorter treatment course (typically 1-5 visits) and little or no side effects. It is also often used post-surgery to eradicate any lingering disease and prevent future tumor re-growth. The Penrose Cancer Center brings world-class cancer technology and physicians directly to southern Colorado residents. Established in 1939, we are one of the best-known cancer programs in the western United States. Long-established as a pioneer in radiation oncology, our comprehensive program provides patients access to services in a warm, caring environment. Our cutting-edge technology coupled with the latest procedures and unique support programs serves patients throughout the full spectrum of care. By centralizing our care and services and working in tandem with Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers, Southern Colorado Breast Care Specialists, and a team of Physician Members, we make it easier for patients to navigate the health care system. Plus, our physicians have all the information they need regarding their patient's care in one place. We offer a full range of clinical trials, psychosocial support services, and nurse navigation. Our multidisciplinary approach to care unites surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, oncology certified nurses, and ancillary staff to deliver the best possible outcome for patients. We are also part of the Centura Health Cancer Network, a comprehensive statewide cancer network that brings together the best and brightest minds in cancer care. Armed with leading edge technologies and capabilities, we offer a complete array of services, connecting patients with all types of cancers and blood disorders to the most advanced care available in Colorado.
