Welcome to the Franciscan Healthcare Cancer Center in La Crosse

If you or someone you love has cancer, you want to feel assured that the most qualified physicians, health care professionals and the most comprehensive and latest treatment options are available locally.

The Cancer Center
You will be cared for in the Cancer Center, located in the lower level of the Center for Advanced Medicine and Surgery. The comfortable and healing environment was carefully considered when designing this area for our patients and their families - everything from soothing art on the walls to the layout of the treatment rooms and waiting areas. All services are offered in a single location with easy access to parking for chemotherapy and radiation patients.

Exceptional Quality Medical Services Offered in a "Healing Environment"
The Cancer Center offers services including cancer prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment (including radiation therapy and chemotherapy), support, and integrative therapies.

It also provides a "healing environment", a space that helps to support the whole person - body, mind and spirit; floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on a lovely courtyard with an eleven-circuit labyrinth; an expansive lobby/waiting area complete with a fireplace, water fountain, and large aquarium; natural stone flooring; comfortable furniture; and rooms dedicated to massage and healing touch as well as quiet prayer and reflection.

The Cancer Team
We understand that you are being asked to make important decisions at a time when you might not be feeling your best. As part of your cancer care plan, all members of your cancer team are committed to helping you navigate through the healthcare system to identify when options are to be considered, to help you understand them, and simply to be with you.

Your cancer team includes your primary care provider, physician specialists in cancer treatment including medical, surgical and radiation oncology, radiologists, therapists, dosimetrists, physicists, nurses, dietitians, chaplains, social workers psychologists, behavioral health counselors, educators and experts in any other service you might require or desire.
