Hardin Memorial Hospital Joins Markey Affiliate Network

Published: Mar 17, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 17, 2014)Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown, Ky., is the latest medical center to join the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network (MCCAN).

 

The affiliation means more cancer patients across Kentucky will be able to receive the advanced specialty and subspecialty care of the UK Markey Cancer Center, recently named the 68th National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in the country, and the only one in Kentucky. Other benefits include access to clinical trials and advanced technology while allowing patients to stay closer to home for most treatment.

 

"The Markey affiliate agreement provides a great opportunity for professional education and training for our staff and physicians," said Ray Poston, director of the Cancer Care Center at Hardin Memorial. "Collaboration with Markey and their affiliates across the state allows our team to stay up-to-date on the newest cancer treatments and research."

 

Hardin Memorial becomes the ninth hospital to join MCCAN. Other affiliates include ARH Cancer Center in Hazard, Frankfort Regional Hospital, Georgetown Community Hospital, Harrison Memorial Hospital in Cynthiana, the Norton Cancer Institute in Louisville, Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital in Ashland, Rockcastle Regional Hospital in Mount Vernon, and St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead.
