Regional One Health and West Cancer Center Partner to Provide
Cancer Care at Midtown Location
Regional One Health and West Cancer Center and Research Institute have partnered to bring exciting changes to the Midtown cancer center. Effective March 1, 2021, the West Cancer Center Midtown location has transitioned to a hospital outpatient department of Regional One Health.
The new Regional One Health Cancer Center, located at 1588 Union Avenue, will continue to provide the exceptional level of care the patients and community have experienced at this location under West Cancer Center. Patients at this location will continue to see the same providers through an agreement between Regional One Health and West Cancer Center.

Their expertise is invaluable to us, and we are proud to partner with them to provide care to individuals in this community faced with cancer.”
West Cancer Center’s CEO, Mitch Graves stated, ”West is proud to join Regional One Health in expanding cancer care in the core of our community. It is nice to enter into a relationship where both entities strive to exceed in clinical excellence, patient centric care and access.”
“Regional One Health has grown our specialty care footprint in the community over the past several years, and the addition of oncology services is another indicator of this growth,” said Dr. Coopwood.
