WVU cancer center to open new facility

Morgantown, W.Va.-based WVU Cancer Institute plans to open a new facility at WVU Medicine Potomac Valley Hospital in Keyser, W.Va., in January. 

The 1,400-square-foot center will offer cancer care and infusion services. It features six infusion bays, including private bays and communal bays for patients who opt to interact with others during the infusion process, according to a Dec. 13 news release. 

Kevin Shannon, MD, will serve as medical director at the center. 

"The opening of the new cancer and infusion center here at Potomac Valley Hospital brings a greatly needed service to our community," said Mark Boucot, president and CEO of Potomac Valley Hospital. "As the leader of the hospital, I think it's important that the hospital provides the greatest breadth of services possible in our own community so that patients don't have to travel, especially for care as critical as cancer services. We're confident that this center here in Keyser will help improve care and patient outcomes by having the WVU Medicine level of care delivered locally."
