Southwest Iowa cancer patients are keeping Methodist Jennie Edmundson Cancer Center’s new linear accelerator busy providing radiation therapy.

We treat an average of 16 patients a day, so we never really stop treating,” said Michelle Kaufman, director of oncology services at the Council Bluffs hospital.

Jennie President and CEO Steve Baumert thanked donors for their support during a ribbon cutting Wednesday for the “state-of-the-art” machine.
