Oncology & Infusion Therapy
Bringing Oncology Services Closer to Home
A collaboration between UR Medicine affiliates has improved access to oncology services in the region by providing cancer patients the expertise of the UR Medicine Wilmot Cancer Institute oncology team, closer to home.
Located in Dansville on the Noyes Health campus, the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center features a radiation oncology clinic and a medical oncology clinic. These two clinics provide care for adults with many types of cancers. The radiation oncology clinic is part of Noyes Health, and the medical oncology clinic is part of Strong Memorial Hospital.
Patients in need of infusion therapy often have a condition that is so severe it can’t be treated with oral medications. To ease the burden of travel, the Wilmot Cancer Institute Infusion Center, Part of Jones Memorial Hospital was established.
Located on the third floor at Jones Memorial Hospital, the Wilmot Cancer Institute provides oversite of the center and medical oncologists for the UR Medicine Oncology Clinic. The three oncology RNs in the Infusion Center were trained at the Wilmot Cancer Institute, using WCI policies and best practices.
For patients and their caregivers, having the services and resources of the Wilmot Cancer Institute closer to home will ease the financial and physical burden of travel for these medically vulnerable patients.
