Sioux Valley Hospital USD Medical Center is announcing Phase II of the Sioux Valley Cancer Center
. In March of 2006, construction of the next phase of the Cancer Center
will begin. An entire floor will be dedicated to the new location of the Sioux Valley Clinic-Breast and Bone Health Institute. This expanding clinic will be moving above the Sioux Valley Outpatient Radiation Therapy area of the Cancer Center
