CHI Health Good Samaritan Cancer Center

Good Samaritan's Cancer Center, on the campus of Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, serves central and western Nebraska and northern Kansas. The Cancer Center offers stereotactic radiosurgery, stereotactic radiotherapy, image-guided radiation therapy, respiratory gating and RapidArc through Varian Trilogy. The medical oncology department provides patients with private treatment rooms. The cancer program is involved with various clinical trials, allowing patients the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research. Multidisciplinary care, counseling services, patient navigation, genetics and tobacco cessation counseling, and various support groups are available on site. Other integrated therapies including pastoral care and use of the healing garden are also available. The Cancer Center also employs outreach coordinators to promote prevention and early detection to rural citizens of Nebraska.

Mission: Our mission is to nurture the healing ministry of the Church by bringing it new life, energy and viability in the 21st century. Fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity and social justice as we move toward the creation of healthier communities.

We love to see our patients finish a milestone in their treatment journey or simply have a good day and we are thankful that we get to celebrate with them as they ring the bell at the Cancer Center. Thanks Jen for you persistence and for being the first patient to ring the bell.

We believe in celebrating life’s moments-big, small and everything in between. Our new celebration bell, aptly named Joy, is already a beloved addition at the Cancer Center. Joy helps patients mark any victory from conquering a tough day to their last treatment. Read more about how our caring staff, and a grateful donor, helped fulfill Jennifer Nicol's dream of being the first patient to ring Joy after 3+ years of treatment: https://www.kearneyhub.com/news/local/good-samaritan-s-celebration-bell-in-the-cancer-center-lifts/article_1fb303ca-8c60-11e9-b42e-5375951bbf7d.html

Come join us for our Cancer Survivor Day celebration on Tuesday, June 11, 2019. Please RSVP to 308.865.7985.

We will be closed today, Thursday, April 11th due to the weather. Stay home and stay safe!

Thanks ladies for helping to make a difference in our patient’s lives.

We're bowled over by the generosity of Kearney's USBC Bowling Association who raised $507.50 for Kearney Tackles Cancer! Representatives, JoAnn and Etha, say several member's lives have been touched by cancer and the club wanted to help the cause locally. Big thanks...you just scored a 300 in our book!

What it means that the Surgeon General now calls vaping an "epidemic"

"The US Surgeon General just declared youth vaping an epidemic, and called out e-cigarette giant Juul as part of the problem in an advisory today."

It's important that we educate ourselves and that we talk to our teens about the risks involved with vaping.

Our Cancer Center nurses Jenifer Roach and Trinette McDonald took care of a traveler from the North Pole today! To make this jolly elf (Dustin Behlman) and their other patients feel special, our Cancer Center team assembled gift bags presenting them along with their warm wishes.

For the past several years, CHI Health Good Samaritan Foundation has displayed a Tree of Hope at the center of Kearney's Hilltop Mall. For the past three years, annual donations received have gone to Kearney Tackles Cancer to help those going through treatment and struggling financially.

Thanks to all those who continue to support Kearney Tackles Cancer, our patients battling cancer and for remembering those who have lost their battle.

We are beyond grateful to Mary Harbur for her generous heart. Mary and a group of ladies have collected donations and put together comfort bags for our patients for the past few years.

Our patients love them and the staff love being able to brighten someone's day. THANKS MARY!

Today a few of our staff went to Northeast Elementary School to accept donations from their Christmas Jar collection. This is the 5th year the students and staff have collected change and put it into decorated Christmas Jars and then gave us the money to give to a couple of our patients and their families. Our patients are brought to tears by the generosity and we are overwhelmed by the students and staff giving hearts. This year's grand total was $1506.05!!! Thank you Northeast Bobcats!! And, thanks to Farmers and Merchants Bank for counting all the change.
