Wednesday, December 20, 2017

New practice location offers advanced specialty care in healing environment

WellSpan Health announced today that WellSpan Medical Oncology & Hematology in Hanover has moved to a new, expanded location.

The practice – now located at 671 Wilson Ave., Hanover – is accepting new patients. The office features additional exam rooms and updated equipment in a comfortable, healing environment.

“It’s important for those who live and work in the Hanover area to have access to advanced cancer care in their community,” said Douglas Arbittier, M.D., M.B.A, vice president of oncology services at WellSpan Health. “This new location allows us to expand so that we can continue to meet the growing needs of our patients.”

The new office offers advanced oncology and hematology care through comprehensive diagnostic and medical treatment services for a variety of cancers.

The care team at the practice uses the most advanced technologies and treatments, including chemotherapy, newly developed biologic and immune modulated therapies and, when appropriate, hormone therapy.

Robert Rice, M.D., WellSpan Medical Oncology & Hematology, is practicing at the new location, helping design patient care plans and coordinate with other cancer specialists.

“We value our connection to the community and know providing care close to home matters,” Rice said. “We’re excited about the opportunity to continue to provide compassionate cancer care to the Hanover community, and to be able to offer that care in a convenient, patient-centered location.”

WellSpan offers leading-edge cancer treatment close home through its network of five community-based cancer centers, which is strengthened by a clinical collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.

Announced earlier this year, the collaboration benefits patients living with cancer in York, Adams, Lancaster and Lebanon counties through expanded access to clinical trials for patients of WellSpan’s cancer centers and second opinion services from Johns Hopkins specialists for rare and complex cases that require advanced treatment technologies. In addition, the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center serves as a referral destination, providing WellSpan patients a seamless transition of care.

WellSpan Medical Oncology & Hematology is open to new patients. For more information, visit www.WellSpan.org/Oncology.
