The Medical Center at Bowling Green is a member of the UK Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network. The network was created to provide high-quality cancer care closer to home for patients across the region, and to minimize the effects of cancer through prevention and education programs, exceptional clinical care, and access to research.
The Medical Center is the regional referral center for cancer care in Southcentral Kentucky with nearly 1,000 cancer cases diagnosed at the hospital annually. The Medical Center provides the area’s only radiation oncology program through the Cancer Treatment Center. In addition to radiation therapy, the oncology-related services provided by the hospital include diagnostic imaging, surgery, chemotherapy, psychosocial support, rehabilitation, nutrition, patient navigation, survivorship care planning, and palliative care. The Medical Center operates a second radiation oncology practice, Barren River Regional Cancer Center, in partnership with TJ Samson Community Hospital in Glasgow, Ky.
By becoming a UK Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network member, The Medical Center is able to offer patients access to additional specialty and subspecialty physicians and care, including clinical trials and advanced technology, while allowing them to stay in their region for most treatments.
