At Nebraska Cancer Specialists (NCS), our years of experience have enabled us to develop Nebraska’s leading community oncology practice delivering compassionate, personalized and cutting edge care in a convenient outpatient setting. We are excited to be expanding our services into Central Nebraska.
NCS understands every patient’s cancer story is unique. That’s why in addition to a personalized treatment plan designed for you, we believe in whole-person care during and after a diagnosis.
|Proudly, on August 1, 2021, the board-certified medical oncologists and hematologists, Dr. Ryan Ramaekers, Dr. David Crockett, Dr. Pornchai Jonglertham, and Dr. Sarah Creamer joined Nebraska Cancer Specialists’ existing group of 12 board-certified medical oncologists, one nuclear medicine physician, one radiation oncologist and more than 230 dedicated oncology professionals. The four central Nebraska providers will continue to work out of the Regional Cancer Center on the CHI Health St. Francis campus as well as in the existing cancer center in the Hastings Landmark Center. NCS will begin building a full service cancer clinic this fall at the Grand Island Regional Medical Center.
“We are excited to become an independent practice to allow us more flexibility in serving our patients and referring providers from any facility in central Nebraska. We could not have chosen a better group than Nebraska Cancer Specialists. This collaboration will allow us to continue providing exceptional medical oncology care to our current and future patients,” said Dr. Ramaekers. “We are looking forward to bringing new technology, such as their nuclear medicine theranostics program, and more clinical trials than we have ever been able to offer our patients in central Nebraska.”
Nebraska Cancer Specialists currently has locations throughout Omaha, in Papillion and Fremont, with outreach locations in West Point and Pender. “Our independent practice model has allowed us to provide care in a wide variety of settings over the years and has allowed us to adapt to the needs of our patients and colleagues,” said Dr. Robert Langdon, NCS President.
“The new partnership is yet another way Nebraska Cancer Specialists is growing to meet the needs of patients and families across the state,” said Danielle Geiger, NCS Practice Administrator. “Our focus has always been to offer patients compassionate and cutting-edge care, and we are excited to bring this approach to the Grand Island and Hastings area. We think this philosophy of care will resonate well with the community.”
Current patients do not need to take any action. NCS and CHI Health are working to make sure this transition occurs smoothly without any disruption of patient care. If you have any questions about the new collaboration or any questions about the patient care services, please contact Nebraska Cancer Specialists at 402-334-4773.
|There are two types of oncology practices that provide care in the outpatient setting: community oncology and hospital-based oncology.
The benefit of community oncology centers is that they have been found to provide efficient, patient-centered oncology care at lower costs to patients, health plans, and community physicians.
