Oncology services return to UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital

UHS is excited to announce that oncology services have returned to UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital. We have been eager to restore the services so that patients in the community can once more receive potentially lifesaving treatments close to home.

“Our first priority is always to offer the best possible care and service at UHS, Broome Oncology and now Chenango Memorial Hospital, and to ensure that your experience with us is of the highest clinical quality,” says Drake Lamen, MD, President and CEO, UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital.

Services exist as before, including consultations, hematology and oncology follow-up, lab work, chemotherapy and biotherapy infusions, and referrals for second opinions and to any specialty service. In addition, the hospital offers supportive care and phone access to oncology clinical staff.

Joseph Readling, MD, is the primary physician on-site, along with support from a skilled team which includes a pharmacist, nutritionist, registered nurses and support staff. The infusion suite has also been updated to give more space and privacy to patients.

The physicians and staff at UHS Chenango Memorial hope that having care close to home once again will alleviate patients’ financial and emotional burden of having to travel out of town.

“Working together for you, we will do everything we can to make your visit as caring, beneficial and worry-free as possible,” says Dr. Lamen.
