"(With the Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center affiliation), we’re able to directly reach out to someone who may be the foremost expert in that rare disease … The collaboration and actually being able to get people the treatment, get people the help they need, get people the cures that they deserve – that’s my favorite part."

Nicolas Burnett, MD, radiation oncologist, Flaget Memorial Hospital


"You can be in your own home, come to your own local oncology center and have the ability to get a second opinion, or first opinion, from a world‑renowned oncology care center.”

Monte Martin, MD, medical director, Flaget Memorial Hospital

"That connection will allow for very quick communication for myself, as a community oncologist, to reach out to specialists in a certain area of cancer at Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center and get their input. That brings a lot of value to the patient because it allows them to stay local and still get the best care close to home, which is incredibly important.”

Michael Horn, MD, medical oncologist, Saint Joseph Mount Sterling


"We are very excited and looking forward to this affiliation which will add more resources for our patients and community.”

Michel Bidros, MD, Saint Joseph London

"Practicing hematology and oncology in this relatively small community for the last 20 years, with now having access to Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center and their expertise, is a big boost to what we can offer and provide state-of-the-art treatment options, including trials locally closer to home.”

Muhammad Niazi, MD, Saint Joseph London
