Comfort and care
At Community, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life for our patients. We understand that undergoing cancer treatment can be frightening and stressful. Isn’t it comforting to know you can get the latest and best treatment available, right here, from people you trust? Community is also home to the only American Cancer Society Resource Center in Missoula, connecting you to information and community resources whenever you need them.
At Community, you can count on the same commitment to personal attention for cancer treatment that we provide for all your family’s healthcare needs. We show you the respect you deserve, speak to you as a partner in your care, and offer the kind of caring that makes a difference to your well-being. Whether that’s a touch, someone to listen, or something as simple as access to adequate, convenient parking, we think of you and your needs—always.
Because everyone’s needs are different, we also offer you options for your treatment experience. You can choose from comfortable semi-private spaces with recliners and seating for family members, private rooms with beds and small seating areas, or a group setting if you want to socialize with other cancer warriors. All spaces also have televisions with DVD players plus WiFi access. When it's Oncology in Missoula, it's Community.
