Appalachian Regional Healthcare is now seeking a Board Eligible/Board Certified Hematologist/Oncologist to join their practice in the Cumberland Valley Region. At each location we see a variety of cases and have most specialties and subspecialties available to provide the BEST care for our patients. We are seeking a board eligible or board certified hematologist/ oncologist to replace our existing hematologist/oncologist who is leaving in June 2022 for additional research fellowship training. This is a young oncology service line but has grown swiftly due to the current oncologist. It is an extremely important component of the Hospital overall services provided to the community. We currently offer chemotherapy infusion services in separate suite within the Hospital and have been issued a certificate of need (CON) by the Commonwealth of Kentucky to construct a linear accelerator. In November 2020, the ARH Board of Trustees approved $9 million for the creation of a free-standing cancer center that will house both medical and radiation oncology services

Currently at our Hazard Cancer Center, patients needing radiation are treated with equipment from the most trusted manufacturer in the industry with the Varian TrueBeam Radiation Therapy Linear Accelerator, equipped with On-Board Imaging and 3D Cone-Beam CT for Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT). This equipment allows the team to very accurately align the patient and treat with radiation beams from multiple angles to focus dose to the desired treatment volumes while minimizing dose to surrounding tissue and organs. The use of Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) allows for additional conformity of the radiation dose to achieve highly conformal irradiated volumes and additional sparing of other tissue and organs.
The center’s Siemens Somatom GoSim CT Therapy Simulator is custom-designed to replicate patient position and imaging as they will be treated on the linear accelerator. Varian’s Eclipse treatment planning software uses this information to create and calculate the individualized radiation plans for each patient.
