A Credit to the Community

Sioux City's regional hospitals are a credit to the community.  Both founded before the turn of the century, the city's regional medical facilities serve a huge portion of the three state area (Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota) and excel in many forms of health care.  The diverse and sophisticated services offered by UnityPoint - St Luke's and Mercy Health Center are extraordinary.  Innovative cancer care, open heart surgery, neonatal intensive care, laser surgery and addiction recovery services are just a small example of the local health care capabilities.

The community also offers exceptional cancer treatment at the June E. Nylen Cancer Center, which is the only freestanding corporation of cancer care in the tri-state region.  Owned by two local hospitals, this single site care facility offers cutting edge radiation therapy and hematology medical care.
