Exceptional Care, Extraordinary Caring

In a beautiful setting, on the campus of Mid-Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles, Celilo offers cancer patients and their families opportunities for healing body, mind and soul.

Here patients find advanced technology, compassionate, skilled care providers, and a host of complementary services -- all devoted to healing the whole person. In their most difficult moments, people with cancer find hope, solace and strength through some of the world's most time-honored healing arts.

That Celilo is no ordinary cancer treatment center is apparent even before entering the facility. The soothing sounds of water spilling over a beautiful rock formation at the building's entrance pay homage to its architectural and spiritual inspiration, Celilo Falls. Before they disappeared under the Columbia River with the building of The Dalles Dam, Celilo Falls once provided the region’s earliest residents with a source of nourishment, unity and peace of mind.

Beyond its many physical amenities, Celilo hosts state-of-the-art technology and comprehensive integrative therapies which we put at our patients’, and their families’ disposal, an extraordinary array of healing tools.


Whole Person Healing

At Celilo, we provide patient care in a manner that we believe is unique among cancer centers. We focus not only on a disease and how it affects the body, but also on how it affects the whole person -- body, mind and soul -- and how it affects the person's loved ones.

This unique philosophy has enabled us to attract an outstanding team of physicians, nurses, technologists and other professionals who are among the best in their disciplines. They have chosen Celilo because here they can offer their patients a comprehensive range of healing tools that address their unique physical, spiritual and emotional needs.

Some people may never use all of the tools -- how they approach treatment is their choice. But taking advantage of even one of them can make an enormous difference in a patient’s outcome.
