Oncology unit opens at Roane General Hospital in W. Va.
SPENCER, W. Va. (AP) - A West Virginia hospital has opened a new oncology and infusion center. The unit opened Thursday at Roane General Hospital in Spencer.
It’s in partnership with the West Virginia University Cancer Institute and WVU Medicine Camden-Clark Medical Center in Parkersburg.
The unit at the recently renovated hospital has six private treatment rooms along with support space for patient care and is staffed by a full oncology team.
The hospital says patients no longer will need to drive long distances over rural roads to receive similar care.
Roane General can provide transportation with a van for patients who need it.
