Licking Memorial Cancer Care provides a comprehensive cancer care program concerned with:

  • Prevention and early detection
  • Diagnosis, pretreatment evaluation and staging
  • Optimal treatment, rehabilitation and surveillance for recurrent disease and multiple primary tumors
  • Psychosocial support, and care at the end of life

Our Cancer Program has been approved by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons since 2000. The CoC accreditation is recognized by other national healthcare organizations as establishing performance measures for high-quality cancer care. In 2015, the Commission on Cancer granted a three-year accreditation with commendations to our program, indicating that Licking Memorial Hospital (LMH) demonstrates compliance with all mandatory standards for organizational and operational elements. In addition, we received QOPI ® Certification for the Oncology/Hematolgy practice.  QOPI® Certification was achieved in 2015 and extends for three years.

We are also a proud recipient of the Commission on Cancer's Outstanding Achievement Award.

Our Outpatient Oncology Unit is staffed with specially trained nurses who have completed courses in chemotherapy infusion. Along with chemotherapy, the staff also administers blood transfusions, antibiotics and other related injections.

We are afiliated with the Columbus Community Clinical Oncology Program (NCORP), which is a program established by the National Cancer Institiute (NCI) to bring the latest cancer treatment and prevention to patients at a community level.
