Mercy Health - Perrysburg Cancer
Cancer Services in Northwest Ohio
Comprehensive, regional cancer center opening November 2016
Cancer care in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan is about to be transformed through a partnership in which the patient is at the center of care designed and delivered in a comprehensive approach. Mercy Health and The Toledo Clinic's medical oncologists, the region’s largest group of independent physicians, are partnering together to create a comprehensive cancer program that includes Mercy -Health Perrysburg Cancer Center, a freestanding, comprehensive center for integrated cancer care.
The Center will offer access to the region’s largest team of medical oncologists who together will provide a comprehensive treatment plan designed for the unique needs of each patient that may include diagnostics, surgical consultation, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and access to clinical trials, all provided in an integrated approach in one location.
Mercy Health - Perrysburg Cancer Center will offer four key benefits for patients and, as such, will reduce the need for patients to travel outside the community for care:
- Improved Care Coordination and Quality of Care. By working in partnership Mercy Health and the Toledo Clinic's medical oncologists can combine best practices and quality standards to provide a single, coordinated care pathway for all patients, improving efficiencies, accessibility and convenience for cancer care patients.
- Enhanced Integration with Other Physician Specialists. The partnership will enhance alignment between medical oncologists with other radiation oncologists, surgeons, surgical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and other specialists. Having all cancer specialists under one umbrella allows for better coordination of care for patients.
- Increased Access to Clinical Trials. A more robust clinical research program will allow cancer patients and physicians access to more clinical trials, which often provide advanced and therapeutic treatment options and improve recognition of high quality care standards.
- Increased Supportive Care Services. The Center will be committed to providing additional supportive care for cancer patients, including patient navigators, generics counseling and testing, survivorship program, nutritional counselors, social workers and clinical research personnel. These programs are incredibly important to overall health and management of cancer patients throughout their course of treatment, survivorship stage and end of life care.
The Mercy Health - Perrysburg Cancer Center is located at 12623 Eckel Junction Rd. in Perrysburg, Ohio.
