Southeast Nebraska Cancer Center is dedicated to providing patients with oncologic and hematologic diagnoses comprehensive, progressive medical care in a compassionate and caring setting.

In 1997, when our clinic was started by Dr. Cary Peterson, it had one physician, one physician assistant and 10 or 12 employees. Now it has grown to nine physicians, two physician assistants, three nurse practitioners, a genetic counselor, onsite pharmacist, occupational and physical therapists and over 100 employees. We provide patients with access to the latest treatment protocols, clinical trials and a personalized approach to diagnosis and therapy.


Your comfort and comprehension of the entire treatment process is as important as your diagnosis and protocol. Nurse educators are available to provide education and guidance. View our Patient Resources.
