Why Iowa?

Patient Exposure

Serving the local, regional and national community, the UIHC is the local, state and specialty choice for many of our patients. Owing to our expertise in treating more common as well as rarer types of cancer you will be exposed to more cancer types than at other centers. For example we are one of the few centers to offer Total Skin Electron Therapy, and SRS is considered routine.

Patient Satisfaction

Treatment is service orientated with the focus on the patient and their well-being. For the last three years our department has ranked in the 98 percentile nation-wide for patient satisfaction. An environment that fosters co-operation, not conflict is conductive to a healthy learning environment.


Our clinic was one of the first centers to operate in an entirely paperless environment. This innovative spirit keeps our treatment practices state-of-the-art. Radiation therapy is by nature very technology driven and we have endeavored to keep our treatment delivery at the cutting edge. For example our patients have access to SRS, SBRT, 4-D Gating, HDR brachytherapy and a visualization using cone beam CT. Physics and dosimetry support for treatment is excellent.
