Asante Cancer Care
More than 2,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year in Southern Oregon, a figure that continues to grow, along with the population.
Asante will transform the state of cancer care with a new regional cancer center, soon to be the most advanced home for cancer treatment in the region, and through expanding Spears Cancer Center in Grants Pass.
In the regional cancer center, patients will have all of their necessary services and treatments under one roof:
- Infusion services area to deliver chemotherapy and specialized treatments with exceptional comfort and expansive views
- Radiation oncology with top-of-the-line technology to deliver the most precise radiation
- Exam rooms and physician offices organized for enhanced communication among providers, patients and caregivers
- Offices for visiting specialists and sophisticated video conferencing capabilities to facilitate care coordination between all providers on the care team
- Onsite PET/CT services to increase cancer diagnosis and tumor staging capabilities
- State-of-the-art meeting space for tumor board collaboration, conferences and after-hours public use including support groups and informative classes
Curious about children’s cancer care? Asante has the only pediatric oncologist between the Bay Area and Portland. A new women’s and children’s hospital will house an outpatient infusion unit within the new medical pavilion on the Asante Rogue Regional campus.

A Cancer Care Story
When Ginny received her lung cancer diagnosis, she thought there must be a mistake. The former teacher and principal had no family cancer history; she was active and health conscious. She also had never smoked – something nearly 18% of people with this illness have in common.
