OLBH Becomes a Member of Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network
OLBH recently began an affiliation with the University of Kentucky’s Markey Cancer Center by becoming a member of the Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network (MCCAN).
The MCCAN is a group of community hospitals in the Commonwealth of Kentucky that provide high-quality cancer services and programs in their communities with the support of the University of Kentucky’s Markey Cancer Center. “As a member of the MCCAN, OLBH is positioned as an area leader in cancer care,” said OLBH chief medical officer, Daniel Goulson, M.D. “The MCCAN extends the Markey Cancer Center’s reach so patients across the Commonwealth can receive the same high-quality cancer care close to their homes, including patients in our region seeking care at OLBH.”
The affiliation gives cancer patients in the Tri-State area access to additional specialty and subspecialty physicians and care, including clinical trials and advanced technology, while allowing them to visit OLBH for most treatment. OLBH joins eight other hospitals and medical facilities in the MCCAN, including Norton Healthcare, St. Claire Regional Medical Center, Georgetown Community Hospital and Frankfort Regional Medical Center.
