Who benefits from the Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network?
- Cancer patients - Living close to an affiliate member saves you travel time and costs. You can receive the latest, most up-to-date cancer treatments closer to home.
- Families - When treatment is available locally, families can spend more time with their loved ones and less time on the road.
- Local doctors - We work with your primary care doctor to coordinate cancer care during treatment as well as afterward.
- Communities - We help plan local activities such as health fairs and cancer screening programs. Community members can also participate in research that may lead to newer and better cancer care. Our goal is to be the cancer resource for the communities we serve.
The Markey Cancer Center and the University of Kentucky - The affiliate partnership is valuable to the mission of both UK and the Markey Cancer Center in providing high-quality cancer care throughout the region.
We work with people you know and trust - the doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other hospital staff who provide excellent medical care in your community.
Our patients can participate in clinical research trials and receive treatment due to our relationship with the UK Markey Cancer Center. Clinical trials have led to scientific advances that have helped to improve and lengthen the quality of life for cancer patients across the country.
