Dr. Jacqueline Matar with CHI Saint Joseph Health - Cancer Care

We're already accredited by multiple national organizations but we were approved to affiliate with Cleveland Clinic. By affiliating with Cleveland Clinic, we have access to far more specialists than are available in Lexington alone. 

We can easily share X-rays, CT scans, and other information so that patients here can have a second opinion at Cleveland Clinic without requiring them to travel or incur additional costs. This means that the treatment for patients here is guided by the latest medical information, optimizing quality and minimizing costs. This makes us stronger together.

For more information, go to CHISaintJosephHealth.org. I'm Adrian Flores.

Call our Hope line at 844.940.4673 to speak with one of our referral coordinators. They are available to walk you through the referral process, assist with scheduling and help you get a second opinion for your cancer diagnosis and treatment.
