Mitchell Memorial Cancer Center 2018 Public Report
As part of Owensboro Health, the center’s mission is to heal the sick and to improve the health of the communities we serve. We are committed to that mission on all fronts. As an American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer comprehensive cancer center, we offer national-level cancer care. We are working to catch cancer early with screenings, or prevent cancer altogether by increasing community awareness and promoting healthy behaviors.
This report represents our continued commitment to the communities we serve. By sharing this information with you, we hope to tell the story of our progress and what we see in the years ahead.
Thank you for reading and for allowing us to serve you and all the people of our region.
Why We Fight Cancer
Owensboro Health exists to health the sick and improve the health of the communities we serve.
That means we fight on two fronts against diseases great and small, and there is no greater foe in the Commonwealth of Kentucky than lung cancer. The fight against lung cancer is challenging and historically progress has been slow, but that is beginning to change.
We are now empowered with the ability to screen for lung cancer and detect it early, offering hope for a cure for more individuals than ever before.
We have more sophisticated diagnostic techniques and capabilities, helping us to understand cancer better and how we can treat it and beat it.
We have new medicines and therapies that can help prolong the lives of lung cancer patients and improve their quality of life.
For those who now struggle. For those who have yet to fight.
