Regional Health-John T. Vucurevich Cancer Care Institute

Department of Regional Health Rapid City Hospital

Maybe it's your mom...or your best friend. Maybe it's the next door neighbor. Maybe your child's teacher. Maybe... it's you. Cancer affects most of us at some point in our lives. The good news is the sooner cancer is detected and treated, the better the chances of surviving and resuming your life for many years.

Since opening in 1993, the Regional Health-John Vucurevich Cancer Care Institute has provided care for thousands of patients. Conveniently located adjacent to Regional Health Rapid City Hospital, Regional Health-John Vucurevich Cancer Care Institute provides inpatient and outpatient oncology services, supportive laboratory and imaging services, as well as services for related clinical research trials.

We believe strong communication between cancer specialists, family physicians, referring specialists and supportive service providers provides optimal cancer care. We continually review and update our techniques and technologies to provide the most leading edge cancer therapies. Our long-standing relationships with nationally renowned research groups allows us to offer some of the latest emerging therapies.
