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.

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.
