Memorial Health has teamed up with one of the nation’s leading cancer research and care providers, The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James), through their James Cancer Network, to provide oncology services at Memorial sites in our service area.
These services will continue to be led locally by Robert Rupert, MD, and Jenna Hoffman, CNP, along with Memorial’s expert nursing and pharmacy teams in the Specialty Care Center.
By joining The James Cancer Network, Memorial will continue to provide broad, state-of-the-art, and compassionate cancer care to the region.
As network members, Memorial providers and patients have a direct connection to the expertise and subspecialization at the OSUCCC – James. You see, cancer research by specialization is now at our fingertips. Not to mention a wealth of information on patient treatments and outcomes by cancer type. Memorial can utilize these expert connections and medical advancements to help patients navigate their cancer journey.
Additionally, Dr. Rupert and his team can tap into clinical trials and patient case reviews, as well. Our team can access hundreds of open clinical trials at any given time, with some of the world’s latest discoveries available to clinical trial patients. For cancer patients, clinical trials mean hope. Hope in a world without cancer and in better, more targeted ways to prevent, detect, treat, and cure individual cancers.
Additionally, case reviews enable Dr. Rupert to coordinate with OSUCCC – James specialists from surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, radiology, genetics, and pathology to review a patient’s condition and determine the best treatment plan. Plus, Dr. Rupert served for years as the Medical Director for Oncology at The Ohio State University, JamesCare East, so he has strong connections, backed by years of oncology expertise.
Together, you’ve got the best and brightest cancer team, so you can be confident in the quality of your care.
