St. Anthony Expands Cancer Care Services

Beginning this week, St. Anthony Regional Hospital is expanding their commitment to cancer care in west central Iowa. Two days each week, Dr. Mark Westberg, with Medical Oncology and Hematology Associates, will serve patients at the St. Anthony Specialty Clinic. He will work in the Oncology Clinic on Tuesdays and Thursdays, joining Dr. Robert Behrens, who is available by appointment on Mondays. “Providing consistent medical coverage through the St. Anthony Specialty Clinic is important to our patients in west central Iowa,” Dr. Westberg says. “By extending our days of coverage, we are able to assist more patients with their medical needs and be more accommodating of their schedules. During a time of uncertainty in dealing with cancer, it’s imperative we create stability for our patients,” he adds. Chemotherapy will continue to be administered five days per week by oncology certified staff. Patients may call the oncology unit between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday for more information or to schedule appointments.
