One Step at a Time
A diagnosis of cancer can be difficult, so at St. Luke's we make it our priority to provide quality care in a comfortable atmosphere. We're here for you from the moment you are diagnosed and throughout your treatment stages.
- Starting with diagnosis, St. Luke's pathologists and radiologists are here to detect signs of cancer, even at its earliest stages.
- Inpatients are cared for in the Harold and Mary Bomgaars Center for Cancer Care here at St. Luke's. Funded through generous donations and a significant gift from Harold and Mary Bomgaars, our Center for Cancer Care provides a comfortable place to gather with loved ones during cancer treatment.
- For patients needing outpatient services, you may be referred on to June E. Nylen Cancer Center, in Sioux City, Iowa, for off-site radiation as well as advanced diagnostic and treatment technology.
- St. Luke's Ambulatory Service Infusion Center also provides treatment to hundreds of cancer patients annually, assisting with chemotherapy, blood transfusions, IV antibiotic therapy and other IV treatments.
- Rehabilitation Services provided by St. Luke's on either an inpatient or outpatient basis helps patients manage lymphedema, a condition that can occur in breast cancer survivors. Physical therapists help patients manage this condition with massages, compression bandages and special exercises.

On-Site Guest Rooms
The Levitt Guest Center (currently closed due to COVID restrictions)
The Levitt Guest Center, located at St. Luke's just down the hall from the Bomgaars Center for Cancer Care, was created through a generous gift by Nancy Levitt Rosenthal of Sioux City in memory of her first husband, David Levitt, who died of pancreatic cancer.
This guest center offers family members quiet suites with private baths where they can rest and renew their spirits. Up to seven families can stay in the guest center at one time.
Because of Mrs. Rosenthal's significant gift, there is no charge to stay at the Levitt Center. Gifts of $20 or more per night are welcome, and are used to help maintain the facility so others may enjoy its proximity and comfort for years to come.
The June E. Nylen Cancer Center offers a number of classes to offer cancer patients and their loved ones additional support. Support Groups are also available, including the After Breast Cancer Support Group, Kids Coping with Cancer, and The Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
