CHI Saint Joseph Health expands affiliation with Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center

Saint Joseph Mount Sterling (Ky.), part of Lexington, Ky.-based CHI Saint Joseph Health, has partnered with Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center to provide access to specialized care for the region's cancer patients.

It's an expansion of the health system's initial partnership with Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center, formed in 2019, which offered patients in Lexington more specialized care. 

As part of the affiliation, physicians and cancer patients at the Mount Sterling hospital will have access to Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center experts and subspecialists, as well as highly specialized treatment options.  

"This affiliation means that our patients in Montgomery (Ky.) and surrounding counties will have access to second opinions and input to treatment plans from one of the nation's most respected cancer programs," said Jennifer Nolan, president of Saint Joseph Mount Sterling. "Being able to offer this expertise in a small community like Mount Sterling will allow our patients to receive this highly specialized care close to home." 

Since the initial launch in 2019, more than 220 of the health system's cancer patients have benefitted from consultations, tumor board review and input into treatment plans, according to Tony Houston, CEO of CHI Saint Joseph Health.
