Experts in every type of cancer

Holden’s teams of cancer specialists are ready to provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan personalized for your unique case of cancer. Every Holden oncologist specializes in a specific type of cancer.

While many hospitals can provide general cancer care, only Holden has medical and surgical oncologists working with cancer researchers who examine your cancer from the inside out, at the molecular level, to identify the unique makeup of the cells that caused your tumor.

That depth of knowledge gives us the ability to diagnose your cancer and recommend the most advanced treatment—not to fight just any cancer, but to fight your unique case of cancer.

Many patients who come to Holden for a second opinion learn that their doctor’s original diagnosis is accurate and their treatment plan is the one our oncologists recommend. They return home knowing that their care has been reviewed and endorsed by our world-class experts in their type of cancer.

World-class cancer diagnosis close to home

Holden is the only cancer center in Iowa to be designated by the National Cancer Institute as a comprehensive cancer center. There are less than 60 NCI-designated cancer centers in the United States.

Studies have shown that NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers have patient survival rates up to 25 percent higher than other centers.

That’s because comprehensive cancer centers have the experts to provide the best patient care needed to support research into the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of every type of cancer.

When you need a second opinion for your cancer diagnosis, all of that advanced world-class expertise is nearby, in Iowa, and just one phone call away.
