The second oldest hospital in Kansas, Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center is the product of a merger between Christ's Hospital and the Jane Stormont Hospital and Training School for Nurses. It has since grown to a 586-bed acute care referral center for northeast Kansas. Today, Stormont-Vail provides services not only for hospitalized patients, but for the growing number of outpatients.

The state-of-the-art Cotton O'Neil Cancer Center has joined the ranks of specialty medical centers within the Stormont-Vail HealthCare family. Opened in December 2006, the center is a prevention, treatment and research facility. As a division of Stormont-Vail HealthCare, it offers one-stop outpatient medical services for patients, with appointments available with a general surgeon, medical oncologist and radiation oncologist, all in the same location. Services for pediatric hematology/oncology began being offered at the Cotton O'Neil Cancer Center in 2010.

The center houses state-of-the-art cancer diagnostic, staging and treatment technology, an infusion center and a clinical research center. There are also ancillary services offered for patients such as rehabilitation, genetic counseling, nutritional counseling, social work and pastoral care.

The Cotton-O'Neil Cancer Center has the first PET/CT in a 13-county region in northeast Kansas. With PET/CT capabilities, the equipment simultaneously images and combines the results of two state-of-the-art scanner technologies into a single exam: the highly sensitive PET scan picks up actively growing cancer cells, and the CT scan provides a detailed picture of the inside of your body to reveal the size and shape of abnormal cancerous cells. The Cotton-O'Neil Cancer Center is also home to an Image-Guided Radiotherapy System (IGRT).

Services offered at the Cotton-O'Neil Cancer Center include: outpatient treatment; clinical trials; genetic counseling; PET/CT; radiation therapy with the Triology Image-Guided Radiotherapy linear accelerator; Phlebotomy and clinical laboratory services; patient appearance facility; nutritional counseling; social work; pastoral care; cancer rehabilitation; education programs and resources.
