Each week, physicians from the Montana Cancer Center at St. Patrick Hospital travel to Polson to provide cancer treatment to patients at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center. Together, we help patients like you stay at home in Lake County for much of your cancer care.
Dr. Otto Klein was grateful for the high-quality cancer treatment he received at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, but he wanted to have the quality of the surroundings match the amazing level of care.
With generous donations from his loved ones, the Otto Klein Cancer Center opened in March 2011.
The third floor of Providence St. Joseph Medical Center was completely remodeled. It now includes two exam rooms, two treatment rooms with enough space for eight patients, a waiting area for families that includes a kitchen and supportive care counseling to help patients and families.
