Alamance Regional Opens Cancer Clinic in Yanceyville
Convenient access to cancer care is now available to residents of Caswell County and the surrounding area through a partnership between Alamance Regional Medical Center and Caswell Family Medical Center. Alamance Regional’s Cancer Center was selected by the medical practice to provide high-quality care to the area. A recent community needs assessment determined access to specialists is a major health issue in Caswell County.
Based on the findings of the needs assessment, Caswell Family Medical Center expanded to offer additional services in the Caswell County area. “We knew as we were planning this expansion we wanted Alamance Regional Medical Center to provide cancer care to our clients,” says Caswell Family Medical Center CEO Shirley Deal. “Their cancer program has a stellar reputation, and we’re thrilled to have them available to offer this type of high-quality specialty care right here in Caswell County.”
The clinic is located in Caswell Family Medical Center on Highway 158 in Yanceyville. It is staffed by board-certified oncologist Timothy Finnegan, MD, and Krissy Carr, NP, both with Alamance Regional Cancer Center, and is open to patients with appointments on Tuesday afternoons.
“We are excited to have this opportunity and plan to work closely with the health care providers in Caswell County to increase access to healthcare to their patient population.” says Finnegan.
The clinic provides oncology appointments and some chemotherapy treatment services. Patients who need extensive chemotherapy will receive treatment at Alamance Regional Cancer Center Mebane. Radiation therapy treatments are provided at the main Alamance Regional Cancer Center in Burlington.
