March 26, 2018

Conemaugh Physician Group has welcomed board-certified medical oncologist Dr. Hashem A. Younes, who will provide weekend coverage at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown and assist with patient consultations.

“It’s very rewarding to treat cancer patients and make a positive impact in their lives,” Younes said in a press release. “Treatment options have advanced significantly and we can provide more accurate diagnosis and outcomes for these patients.”

Younes completed his undergraduate degree in biology and completed basic cancer research, which sparked his interest in the specialty. He earned his medical degree from the American University of Beirut and completed a clinical research training program at the University of Pittsburgh. He completed internal medicine internships at the American University Hospital and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Younes also completed his internal medicine residency and a fellowship in hematology/oncology at UPMC.

Younes has extensive experience with treating melanoma skin cancer but will see all types of cancer patients.

He enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters.
