Cancer Care Close to Home
In 1993 Nebraska Medicine began offering radiation therapy services at Shenandoah Medical Center, then Shenandoah Memorial Hospital opened its SMC Infusion Center in 2010. In July of 2020, Shenandoah Medical Center officially assumed operation of the radiation therapy services from Nebraska Medicine.
Today, the Shenandoah Medical Center provides services to our oncology patients with Radiation Oncology and Medical Oncology staff consisting of three physicians, one nurse practitioner, two radiation therapists, and four registered nurses. Our team is committed to providing our patients with the highest quality medical care available.
Due to the rise in cancer cases locally and the anticipated number of future cases, we are quickly outgrowing our current oncology facilities. In the spring of 2021, the Shenandoah Medical Center Board of Directors approved a $9.5 million building project, with construction slated to begin in the fall of 2021.
This addition and renovation project will expand and remodel our existing cancer care facilities to include:
Private entrance and registration area for oncology patients
Open concept infusion therapy department
Increased exam room and office space
New linear accelerator and vault for treatment
Oncology specific rehabilitation area for physical, occupational, and speech therapy treatment
This project will offer patients a larger and more comfortable accommodations, as well as providing our providers and staff with improved work spaces to better serve our patients.

The purpose of this project is two-fold in nature;
- To replace our current linear accelerator, so as to provide faster treatments and allow more patients to be treated locally.
- To expand and update the existing oncology space; including creating a separate entrance and registration area, increased exam rooms and patient space, and improved workspace for our employees.
Shenandoah Medical Center will offer the following new and upgraded oncology services:
- Radiation Oncology
- Medical Oncology
- Infusion Therapy
Constructed is expected to begin in the fall of 2021 and finish in late 2022.
We are currently working very hard to ensure that services are not interrupted. It is possible that we will relocate both radiation therapy and infusion therapy services for a short time period to other places on our campus. We are currently in the planning phase with respect to service relocation.
This project will cost approximately $10 million.
