Jamestown Regional Medical Center is proud to welcome an oncologist to its cancer center.
Dr. Shelby Terstriep, a medical oncologist from the Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center, is now at the JRMC Cancer Center every Monday. Originally from New Rockford, N.D., she is passionate about providing local care and seeing patients for expanded services.
Since the JRMC Cancer Center opened in June, the team administered 140 patient infusions, potentially saving more than 25,000 miles of travel. The center provides outpatient infusion services five days a week including chemotherapy, blood or blood products, iron infusions, steroids, IV hydration and electrolyte replacement, immunoglobulin therapy, osteoporosis medications and medication for chronic illnesses including arthritis, Crohn’s disease and others.
Dr. Terstriep specializes in oncology with a special interest in breast cancer, cancer survivorship and supportive care. She joined the Sanford Health team in 2007 after attending medical school at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, M.O. Dr. Terstriep completed her internal medicine residency and hematology/oncology fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
In addition to her education, Dr. Terstriep has received the 2015 YWCA Woman of the Year, 2014 Inaugural Sanford Health Innovator Award for her work in improving the patient experience, and the 2011 American Cancer Society Lane Adams Quality of Life Award.
“This is a victory. We have a wonderful team in place,” said JRMC Chief Nursing Officer, Trisha Jungels. “Dr. Terstriep is a difference maker for our community and region. To have Dr. Terstriep at JRMC weekly improves access to quality care, close to home. This also means we are able to see new patients and administer the first dose of chemotherapy.”
