Markey Cancer Center Affiliation


The unique affiliate partnership between St. Claire Regional Medical Center (SCR) and the UK Markey Cancer Center provides our region with some of today’s most advanced radiation and chemotherapies. Located on the campus of SCR, the Cancer Treatment Center is a modern cancer treatment facility offering advanced radiation medicine.

This partnership allows for UK physicians to provide onsite advanced cancer treatments in Morehead and provides over $4 million in new radiation medicine equipment.
 
Some of the new radiation equipment includes:

Linear Accelerator with Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) capability: This is an external beam radiotherapy, delivering more precisely targeted radiation beams to tumors, while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue – a painless procedure.

Siemens Sensation Open CT Simulator: A comprehensive oncology solution for advanced virtual CT Simulation enabling visualization of the complete anatomy for more accurate oncology treatment planning. This optimizes the clinical process of image guided radiation therapy planning.
