Taking a Regional Approach to Oncology Services
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.
In January 2017, the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center opens opened on the Dansville campus of Noyes Health. The new cancer center includes a 4,500-square-foot radiation oncology clinic which is part of Noyes Memorial Hospital and a 2,300-square-foot medical oncology clinic which is part of Strong Memorial Hospital. The project was kicked off with a $2 million gift from Ann and Carl Myers of Livingston County.
Closer to home, the services of the Wilmot Cancer Institute are available on the third floor at Jones Memorial. Dr. Brian Smith, an oncologist with Wilmot, is in Wellsville each week to consult patients at the Jones Oncology Clinic on the third floor. Oncology patients are also able to get the care they need at the The Wilmot Cancer Institute Infusion Clinic at Jones Memorial Hospital.
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.
