The Cheyenne Regional Cancer Center offers a comprehensive approach to cancer care that includes radiation and medical oncology treatment, an onsite ambulatory infusion center and lab, cancer screening and prevention programs, financial counseling/navigation services, community outreach and education, social work consultations, local transportation services and a resource center and library. Ancillary services include massage therapy, lymphedema therapy, yoga, nutrition consultation and assistance with fitting prosthetics, wigs, hats and scarves. Our Cancer Center serves as a “one-stop” regional destination for southeast Wyoming, western Nebraska and northern Colorado. Our focus is to provide comprehensive and compassionate treatment to each patient and to be an overall source of support for our patients and their family members. That support includes the convenience of scheduling physician visits, oncology treatments and other medical services on the same day whenever possible.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 02/06/2024

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
