When you come to Guthrie Cancer Centers, you’re right where you need to be.

For more than 80 years Guthrie has provided nationally accredited cancer care, treating all types of cancer, including advanced stage disease.

Our comprehensive team works with patients through all aspects of living with cancer, from diagnosis and treatment, to navigating the health care system, through emotional support, and help figuring out finances. Then stay with you into survivorship.

As part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Guthrie cancer specialists can collaborate with the world-renowned experts at Mayo Clinic at no additional cost to patients.


You can be seen by our team without a cancer diagnosis or if previous medical tests have not determined the type or stage of your cancer. Diagnostic testing results can often be available within 24 hours.

We can also offer consultation if you have been diagnosed with an aggressive, rare or difficult to treat cancer or if you have been told that surgery is not an option.

Types of Cancer

Patients of Guthrie Cancer Center are treated for all types of cancer, including advance stage diseases and aggressive, rare or difficult to treat cancers.


Each individual’s cancer journey is unique and we tailor treatment plans to the patient. Programs are generally comprised of one or a combination of treatments that include: chemotherapy and/or hormone therapy, radiation therapy, surgery. We also use a multidisciplinary approach to care bringing in experts from other areas to address patients’ specific needs.

We offer access to advanced technologies and treatment options as well as clinical trials.
