  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.


Southeast Nebraska Cancer Center is dedicated to providing our oncology and hematology patients with comprehensive medical care in a compassionate and progressive setting.

Dr. Cary Peterson started our clinic in 1997 with one physician, one physician assistant and 10 other employees. Now it has grown to nine physicians, two physician assistants, four nurse practitioners, three occupational and physical therapists, a genetic counselor, a dietician, an onsite pharmacist and over 100 other employees. We pride ourselves on offering our patients 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 are as important as your diagnosis and protocol. Nurse educators are available to provide education and guidance. View our Patient Resources.
