The Genesis Cancer Care Institute delivers cancer care with the next generation of cancer-fighting technology, spacious and attractive facilities, and a focus on services for cancer patients and their families.

Most importantly, these services extend and save lives. We bring the latest life-saving services closer to home for our local patients here in the Iowa/Illinois Quad Cities who need to be near their families and friends.

Genesis  has two of the latest and best cancer-fighting treatment weapons available -- the TomoTherapy Hi-Art treatment system and the Varian Trilogy system. Genesis is one of a very few elite cancer care facilities in the United States to offer both technologies.

Cancers We Treat

The Genesis Cancer Institute is Quad Cities' source for treating all types of cancers, including, but not limited to:

Advanced Treatment


Genesis is only the second Iowa hospital and the first in the region to offer the TomoTherapy Hi-Art treatment system. The specialized CT scanner is an all-in-one treatment option because it not only acquires 3D images of a patient’s tumor but it can deliver the necessary radiation to a tumor with unprecedented precision while protecting the healthy surrounding tissue.

Varian Trilogy Technology

In March 2009 Genesis will be one of very few hospitals in the nation and the first in the the region to offer the Varian Trilogy system, a versatile, image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) system. Varian Trilogy with BrainLAB ExacTrac Robotics will provide the Genesis Cancer Care Institute with the best methods for treating cancers of the brain and spine with radiation delivered with sub-millimeter accuracy.
