that affect the patient and everyone close to them.
We understand that cancer is a lot to handle. That's why we offer personalized
treatment in a calm, supportive, and comfortable setting, right here in
Types of Oncology services performed at the Cancer Care Clinic
At Gunnison Valley Health Oncology, our cancer care team performs a range
of different treatments specific to your condition. We collaborate with
your specialists so you can continue your treatment close to home.
The types of services we provide include:
Chemotherapy- works by targeting rapidly growing cancer cells either throughout the
body or in a specific area of the body
Advanced Genomic Testing- identifies the DNA mutation that may be driving the growth of a specific
tumor and may help doctors identify treatments designed to target those mutations
Genetic Testing- gene mutations that are passed down from one generation to the next and
may be useful in helping to make informed decisions about how to manage
future risks of cancer
Immunotherapy- broad category of cancer therapies designed to stimulate the body’s
immune system to better recognize and fight cancer
Targeted Therapy- designed to seek out features unique to cancer cells and target specific
proteins or mutations that may be driving the cancer’s growth

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 complete care. Since we work with physicians in other communities,
part-time residents can continue therapy during their time in the Gunnison Valley.
