Welcome to Licking Memorial Hematology/Oncology, located at 1320 West Main Street, in Newark, Ohio. Our practice is part of Licking Memorial Health Professionals, a group of more than 100 health care professionals dedicated to improving the health of the community.
Hematology/Oncology is a specialty that focuses on the prevention, development, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer, as well as disorders of the blood and blood-forming organs. We offer a complete, comprehensive cancer treatment program and long-term follow-up care for adults with cancer. All visits with the physicians are by referral.
We are affiliated with the Columbus Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP), which is a program established by the National Cancer Institute to bring the latest cancer treatment and prevention to patients at a community level. In addition, we offer the American Cancer Society’s Patient Navigator Program, which offers assistance to patients and their families or caregivers dealing with a cancer diagnosis. This program is provided free of charge to those who need assistance.
