Clinical Trials & Research

At CHI Saint Joseph Health Cancer Care Center at Flaget Memorial Hospital, we believe that all patients—whether newly diagnosed, advanced or late stage cancer—should be given every chance to fight the disease. That’s why we’re committed to bringing new hope to our Bardstown communities through cancer research and clinical trials.

As a patient, you have direct access to multiple clinical trials that could offer alternatives to standard treatments and more choices for care, while advancing medical research.

Participation in any study is voluntary, and your oncologist will talk with you about the potential benefits, risks and what to expect. All trials are held at our full-service cancer center, so you don’t have to travel far to access these promising options.

See our current list of studies at Flaget Memorial below, or search all open cancer clinical trials at our locations throughout Central Kentucky.
