Cancer Treatment Center
King's Daughters' Health opened its new Cancer Treatment Center in 2015. Beyond its spacious, comfortable interior, the cancer center provides our physicians, nurses, and therapists the advanced tools and technology they need to deliver world-class cancer care. Following national guidelines, cancer patients at King's Daughters' Health receive the same care as patients who visit larger cities. Our program is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
It’s common for cancer patients to have a lot of questions. That's why KDH provides a pair of patient navigators: Candace Sigmon, Certified Oncology Nurse (OCN), and Julie Wehner, Office Coordinator. They provide support, counseling and guidance during the cancer care process. Julie and Candace help patients and families access resources as needed. Call the Cancer Treatment Center at 812.801.0603 and ask for the patient navigator.
