Mercy provides individualized cancer care, including chemotherapy. The field of Chemotherapy is constantly changing with the introduction of many new and promising cancer treatment medications. Chemotherapy is administered to patients in an outpatient setting by our Chemotherapy trained nurses under the direction of Tara Graff, D.O. and Angela Sandre, D.O., Medical Oncologists who visit weekly from Des Moines. Treatment cycles for chemotherapy vary depending on the type of cancer and the protocol being followed. Patients are followed closely by our Oncology team until they return for their next cycle of chemotherapy.
