For over 30 years Coffeyville Regional Medical Center has helped people face this dreaded disease – cancer. Through the Cancer Program, area residents will find the advanced technology needed to fight cancer and the compassion to provide hope to patients and their families. Our cancer program has been accredited by the American College of Surgeons since 1992. This means the program adheres to all the quality standards developed for cancer centers. The cancer program is comprised of three modalities: Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Surgical Oncology.
THE TATMAN CANCER CENTER, renovated in 2007, houses the medical oncology program. The sophisticated treatments administered in this area of the hospital include chemotherapy, IV therapy, hormonal therapy and blood component transfusion. The Cancer Registry is also included in the Tatman Cancer Center. This is a data-based registry that maintains information on all cancer cases and certain benign tumors diagnosed at, or treated at, CRMC. This information is used for studies involving the care and treatment of cancer patients at a local, state and national level.

THE JERRY MARQUETTE RADIATION ONCOLOGY CENTER celebrated it's grand opening in November 2011. After 30 years of radiation oncology services, this new $10.5 million area was re-dedicated to the community with all new equipment, including the Varian Clinac iX, a multiple energy linear accelerator and a Toshiba large-bore CT simulator for planning treatments. A Topex superficial therapy machine and the advanced Eclipse treatment planning system were purchased within the last few years.
As a side note, part of the $10.5 million expansion included a new safe room and alternate care site which will house patients in the event of a natural disaster. The 6500 square foot safe room is located in the basement of the new Radiation Oncology building and can accommodate 38 beds and 34 wheelchairs.
