Driving long distances to and from treatment only makes matters worse. That's why Georgetown Community Hospital and UK HealthCare have teamed up to bring high-quality cancer care to Georgetown.
Georgetown Community Hospital is a member of the UK Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network. The affiliation will allow patients to stay close to home while receiving care. As a member of the network, the hospital will receive a variety of benefits, which will allow us to provide better care to our patients.
These benefits include:
- Access to clinical trials
- Educational programs relating to cancer and public health
- Consulting services available
Georgetown Community Hospital offers chemotherapy services, overseen by hematologist/oncologist, who will coordinate and assist with the care of cancer patients. The chemotherapy infusion suite offers six private rooms, with a television and comfortable chairs for both patients and visitors. The suite is staffed by four full-time oncology certified nurses who are chemotherapy biotherapy certified. The types of infusion available include chemotherapy, IV fluids, blood transfusions and supportive medicine such as Reclast® and Zometa®.
Having a treatment facility so close to home not only saves time, but saves precious energy that could better be put to use in healing!
The University of Kentucky is a national leader in cancer medicine and by working together, Georgetown Community Hospital can provide the best possible care to cancer patients in Scott and surrounding counties.
