At Central Kentucky Cancer Care, our specialists and staff are committed to treating you with compassion and your cancer with the most advanced diagnostics, techniques and cancer treatment available.
We recognize that your quality of life throughout the course of your cancer treatment requires multiple levels of support and energy. As part of the personal care and consideration our patients deserve, we offer a broad range of resources, support mechanisms and ancillary services to help manage the many components of treatment, so patients can focus their attention on getting well. Having these services offered in our local communities is an important factor to our patient care. It allows patients to stay close to home, near family and their support network. It saves commute time, lowers their stress and conserves a patient’s energy that is better spent resting and recovering.

Central Kentucky Cancer Care continues to emerge as a premier regional cancer service, underscored by accreditations, affiliations, and honors.
Commission on Cancer (CoC) accreditation is nationally recognized by many organizations, including the National Cancer Institute, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, National Quality Forum, American Cancer Society, and The Joint Commission, as having established data-driven performance measures for the provision of quality cancer care. CKCC has earned accreditation by meeting or exceeding numerous CoC standards annually that cover numerous aspects of patient-centered care, including cancer prevention, early diagnosis, treatment, genetic testing and counseling, supportive care, and survivorship.
As part of our continuing focus on making communities healthier, we are a proud partner of the UK Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network, which provides our patients with enhanced access to high-quality cancer care. The Markey Affiliate Network assists doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other medical staff at local hospitals that provide excellent care in their communities. When patients need care that is not available locally, they can be referred to the Markey Cancer Center in Lexington. When that happens, Markey doctors work with CKCC doctors and oncologists to minimize travel for patients and their families.
As a member of The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) we promote the entire continuum of quality cancer care for our patients and our communities. Since 1974, ACCC has been helping oncology professionals adapt to the complex changes of delivering quality cancer care. ACCC members rely on the Association to bring them information on cancer program management, reimbursement issues, legislative and regulatory changes at the state and national levels, community cancer program standards, NCI-funded community clinical research, hospital alliances and physician relationships, and more.
