A cancer diagnosis can shake you. But when patients are ready to fight, there is one key question: What happens now?

The Adena Cancer Center state-of-the-art facility was designed to provide the answers to that question all in one place—and as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Convenient Care Close to Home 

We save our patients time. Adena Cancer Center is conveniently located right here in Chillicothe, and our specialists offer a wide range of cancer treatments all under one roof. Plus, same-day scheduling is available for multiple appointments and tests. Our goal is to schedule appointments within 72 hours of a patient’s phone call.  

Multidisciplinary Care

Depending on the type of cancer and how advanced it is, there may be various appropriate treatment approaches. Each Patient's case is discussed weekly at a Tumor Board. Our tumor boards-one for breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and head and neck cancer bring together a team of experts from various fields, including oncologists, surgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners, patient navigators, pathologists, radiologists, and a palliative care physician to discuss the best course of treatment for each patient. Patients receive an individualized plan of care that is consistent among all of the physicians and providers who will care for them.

The tumor boards are scheduled to meet twice weekly. The team will recommend the best options for cancer treatment and the medical oncologists will meet the patient to discuss their personalized care plan. Once the final careplan is selected the Nurse Navigator will coordinate appointments for the patient to begin treatment. 

Advanced Cancer Treatment Options

Certified by the American College of Surgeons, the Adena Cancer Center provides advanced care, including chemotherapy medications and radiation to shrink and destroy tumors and surgical options to remove cancer. Adena also is using the latest immunotherapy  that help the patient’s natural immune system fight the cancer. Plus, ongoing clinical trials offer patients access to the newest innovative cancer therapies.

Keeping track of appointments and understanding the treatment process can be overwhelming. Adena’s patient navigators are here to help patients and their families and caregivers manage treatment, answering questions and connecting them to valuable resources along the way.
