OhioHealth Marion General Hospital Opens Comprehensive Cancer Center
MARION, OHIO – OhioHealth Marion General Hospital has invested more than $20 million to open a new 24,000 square-feet comprehensive cancer center. The OhioHealth Marion Cancer Center is located on the main floor of the East Building of the hospital and is the only comprehensive cancer center in Marion County.
The cancer center will centralize all cancer services into one space that includes a lobby with registration area, cancer physician offices, infusion services, radiation oncology (with upgraded scanning equipment), medical oncology and hematology, oncology rehab, precision medicine, surgery, retail space and more. Services such as patient navigation and support services. The hospital will also offer new integrated care services such as massage and dry needling.
“Centralizing and growing cancer services in Marion means greater access to comprehensive cancer care for our patients close to home,” said Curt Gingrich, MD, president, Marion General Hospital. “We’re committed to bringing more enhanced, specialty care to the market and strengthening our commitment to being a regional referral center.”
“This work will also improve the hospital’s safety and patient outcomes by providing the ability to integrate future treatment updates.” He added, “And having all our cancer providers and teams in one space will allow for greater collaboration around patient care and greater convenience for our patients and their families. You shouldn’t have to travel far and wide for quality cancer care.”
The Marion General Hospital Foundation, Inc., is partnering with the hospital on this project and inviting local individuals and organizations to help improve the health of those we serve by becoming a foundation donor. To date, nearly $1 million has been raised for patient financial assistance, future equipment needs, specialized training for clinicians, and for additional support services not currently available in our community.
