Reaching patients where they live: NCS expands into central Nebraska

It’s this simple: Nebraska Cancer Specialists has the capacity, expertise and knowledge to deliver oncology and hematology care where needed. And it’s that important: Nebraska Cancer Specialists go where patients need care.

The care Omaha-based Nebraska Cancer Specialists provides now extends into central Nebraska. “When communities identify a need and reach out to us, we respond,” said Kelly Horn, NCS’ director of marketing and community outreach. ”We are proud to be serving the Grand Island and Hastings areas.”

In August, Nebraska Cancer Specialists welcomed four medical oncologists and hematologists who were formerly affiliated with CHI Health: Drs. Ryan Ramaekers, David Crockett, Pornchai Jonglertham and Sarah Creamer.

With a combined 67 years in practice, the four physicians and their team join NCS, now consisting of nearly 300 oncology experts, including 12 board-certified medical oncologists, a nuclear medicine physician and a radiation oncologist.

“We are committed to our state and to our roots,” Horn said. “We believe in keeping patients close to their families and loved ones at all costs. We seek to provide care to our patients where they live.”

The four board-certified medical oncologists and hematologists will treat patients at the Regional Cancer Center on the CHI Health St. Francis campus in Grand Island and the Hastings Landmark Center.
