Since 1983, the UK Markey Cancer Center has strived to bring the best cancer care possible to those in the Bluegrass and surrounding regions. In its latest effort to improve patient care, Markey has joined Lexington Clinic in a new collaboration that will expand the scope and depth of outpatient cancer care throughout the region as Markey Cancer Center at Lexington Clinic.
This collaboration allows UK Markey Cancer Center and Lexington Clinic to work together in providing the best possible care. Under the new collaboration, there are two locations and one outreach clinic. Markey Cancer Center at Lexington Clinic in Lexington is a hospital-based department of the University of Kentucky Hospital that provides medical oncology and chemotherapy services. You can visit our hospital-based clinics webpage for more information on this type of clinic.
In addition to services provided in Lexington, radiation therapy, medical oncology, and chemotherapy are available in Richmond along with services provided in the Andover outreach clinic. For more information on locations, phone numbers, and more, visit our collaboration locations page.
Founded in 1920, Lexington Clinic is a community-focused provider and the largest independent multi-specialty group in Kentucky with more than 200 providers in 30 different specialties. The group sees more than 1,000 new cancer patients every year.
“Lexington Clinic and the Markey Cancer Center have served Central Kentucky with the best possible cancer care for decades. This collaboration will increase our ability to reach more patients, expand the services offered by our cancer centers and further Lexington Clinic’s commitment to building a healthier community,” said Dr. Andrew H. Henderson, Lexington Clinic CEO.
Providing excellence across all areas of care
In addition to bolstering outpatient services, this new collaboration with Lexington Clinic will allow UK Markey Cancer Center to expand the number of patients that can participate in clinical trials, which are crucial to the development of new drugs and therapies used to treat patients. All aspects of this collaboration will help advance the mission of providing excellence in research, education and clinical care within the Bluegrass.
