New Markey Initiative Helps Affiliates Deliver Cancer Care Closer to Home
August 17, 2021
The University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center launched a new initiative to create a connected, integrated statewide cancer provider network. As the only cancer center in Kentucky to achieve a National Cancer Institute designation and a U.S. News Top 50 national ranking for the past five years, over 40% of all new cancer cases in the state are directly or indirectly cared for by Markey. The investments, which include upgraded cancer conference facilities and a comprehensive cancer care platform, will help ensure the delivery of quality cancer care close to home.
