Although the news received about my sister's cancer diagnosis wasn't what we wanted to hear, how she was treated by the entire Staff & Providers, gave her a feeling that she was in the right place & she would be getting the best care possible.

Though attending a medical facility for cancer is not an ideal place to have to be, I have always found the atmosphere and staff very pleasant at the Prairie Center. From the medical staff to the gift shop employees, it is a serene place. It's a place where one can have time and space to BE for a while. I actually find peace and enjoy the space you provide, and hope you continue this atmosphere for those dealing with cancer.
