Cone Health Begins Move of Cancer Services in Randolph County
Cone Health Cancer Center at Asheboro opens Oct. 4.
Cone Health is moving its cancer services from Randolph Health. Medical oncology (chemotherapy, infusion services and injections) will be provided at 724 Thomas Street in Asheboro. This new location opens Oct. 4. Radiation therapy remains at Randolph Health for now. Eventually all care of people with cancer in Randolph County will be moved to a new facility housing Cone Health Cancer Center at Asheboro.
The move allows Cone Health to upgrade its cancer services. Cone Health has provided cancer care to people in Randolph County for more than 20-years through a joint venture with Randolph Health. The joint venture ends once a permanent cancer center opens in the future.
“This is the first of several steps we will take over the coming years to consolidate cancer services under one roof,” says Skip Hislop, president, cancer services, Cone Health. “Our goal is to have a very convenient, technologically advanced cancer center for people in this area in just a couple of years.”
Dr. DeQuincy Lewis, Dr. Christine McCarty and the dedicated nurses and staff will remain unchanged during this initial move.
In the coming months, Cone Health will announce a new location for a permanent facility that will again combine medical and radiation oncology. Details of the new Cone Health Cancer Center at Asheboro will be announced once they are finalized.
