The Rivers Cancer Center (RCC) is a partnership between the River Falls Medical Clinic , the River Falls Area Hospital and Minnesota Oncology to provide local, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary cancer care services to patients in western Wisconsin. The program recognizes the central role of the patient and their primary care physician in the prevention and treatment of cancer.

The Rivers Cancer Center is a physician led and directed program which features a Community Hospital Cancer Program as defined by and accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC). We are affiliated with the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute which allows our program to mobilize whatever cancer expertise and services are necessary to support our patients and to reduce the burden of cancer in our communities.

We strive to be truly patient-centered by providing an extensive range of medical and surgical treatment options coupled with personalized and efficient care coordination and survivorship services.

Commitment to Quality

Cancer Care at a CoC-accredited program ensures you will receive:

  • Comprehensive and thoughtful care within an organized system
  • A personalized, effectively-coordinated, and team approach to your care
  • Up-to-date information about clinical trials and the best new treatment options
  • Access to prevention and early detection programs as well as to educational and support services
  • Ongoing monitoring as a cancer survivor following disease-specific guidelines
  • The highest quality care, close to home

We live ‘up north’ but continue to see Dr. Tashjian. Not only does it allow us to visit our daughter, but we get excellent, top-level health care with the ‘small town treatment.’
