Cancer Treatment Center in Gunnison Valley

Care & Compassion for Those Dealing with Cancer

A cancer diagnosis is among the most difficult to receive. Concern, fear, and confusion are just a few of the emotions that come into play; emotions that affect the patient and everyone close to them.

We understand that cancer is a lot to handle. That's why we offer personalized chemotherapy treatment in a calm, comfortable setting, right here in Gunnison County.

Chemotherapy Provided Locally

Nothing is easy for cancer patients. As treatment progresses they often experience fatigue and need help getting to and from treatment. Traveling long distances just adds to the burden, particularly in winter, which is one of the reasons why Gunnison Valley Health opened our Cancer Care Center.

Treatments take place in a quiet, private environment and we work to treat each patient as an individual. Simple things-such as arranging treatments at times that work for the patient and their families, and giving cell phone numbers for questions that come up after hours-are just part of how we deliver care. Since we work with physicians in other communities, part-time residents can continue therapy during their time in the Valley.

Highest Standard of Care from Dedicated Specialists

The Gunnison Valley Health oncology team includes:

  • Allan Miller, M.D., who is board certified in oncology and hematology

Working together, these two doctors are able to meet with new patients and check in with those already receiving treatments in Gunnison. Gunnison Valley Health is fortunate to have acquired two physicians who are skilled in the latest cancer treatment protocols and are well known for spending extra time with patients and their families.

The Cancer Treatment Center is supported by Chuck Turner, RN, who is dedicated to serving oncology patients full-time. Mr. Turner is the department director and is certified as an oncology nurse with over 15 years' experience. Mr. Turner is passionate about providing personalized care for patients before, during, and after treatment.
