Tennessee Oncology Opens New Saint Thomas West Location
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Oncology has opened a new 22,000-square-foot clinic in Saint Thomas West Hospital with additional space and a streamlined layout that was designed to better meet the unique needs of cancer patients and their families.
“Working in close partnership with Saint Thomas West, Tennessee Oncology was able to create a healing environment that incorporates the input of both physicians and patients,” said Jeff Patton, MD, CEO of Tennessee Oncology. “Our goal is to deliver superior oncology and hematology care in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, while allowing them to easily access other necessary hospital services. We believe that this collaborative partnership between the hospital and Tennessee Oncology provides the best possible cancer care and patient outcomes.”
The new clinic, located in the S&E Building on the Saint Thomas West campus, took several months to complete and was officially opened this week. It improves pathways to care by providing all oncology and hematology-related services in one convenient location, including chemotherapy and injection treatment, lab services and the availability of clinical trial participation. The clinic also features patient education and nutrition areas and provides convenient access to state-of-the art imaging, PET/CT, and radiation therapy services, all housed in the same building.
“We are proud to partner with Tennessee Oncology on this innovative, comprehensive cancer center that is a tremendous asset to the hospital and the Middle Tennessee community, offering hope and healing for patients and their families,” said Don King, COO of Saint Thomas West Hospital.
Tennessee Oncology patients at Saint Thomas West will also have access to Park Pharmacy – Tennessee Oncology’s in-practice pharmacy specializing in oncology and hematology medicines not commonly carried in other local pharmacies. Park Pharmacy provides free and convenient expedited home delivery for all Tennessee Oncology patients, insurance and prescription drug education, and around the clock pharmacist access for urgent medication issues.
