CLINTON, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 19, 2019--

Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (GVMH), a leading rural healthcare organization, is proud to announce its new cancer center and partnership with Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at HCA Midwest Health, a leader in world-class cancer care, and HCA Midwest Health, Kansas City’s largest health network and leader in healthcare.

Through the partnership, patients have access to integrated cancer services customized to their needs including convenient access to cancer experts, leading-edge cancer technology, nurse navigators, patient education and clinical trials. Patients are able to receive quality care close to home.

“We are pleased to partner with Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare to provide Clinton and surrounding communities unprecedented regional access to board-certified cancer specialists like Dr. Singh and other experts,” said Ashley McClellan, chief executive officer at Research Medical Center, a hospital of HCA Midwest Health. “These world-class resources will not only help improve outcomes for patients with cancer, but also offer them the ability to be near family and friends during an illness, which we know is vital before, during and after diagnosis, treatment and recovery. This important partnership overcomes geographic barriers, giving patients access to high-quality, compassionate care in their own backyard.”

GVMH is pleased to have Jaswinder Singh, MD, a board certified, fellowship-trained hematologist and medical oncologist affiliated with Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at HCA Midwest Health, to care for patients at its cancer center. Dr. Singh treats all types of cancers and blood disorders. For more than 10 years, he has been helping patients in rural communities and Kansas City. He received his medical degree from the Medical College, Chandigarh in India, completed his residency at Mount Sinai VA Medical Center in New York and his fellowship at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

“This partnership means that we will bring many options for cancer care directly to the community,” said Dr. Singh. “The comprehensive cancer services offered at Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare’s new cancer center will benefit patients, their families and loved ones and the community’s overall well-being.”

On Sunday, December 8, GVMH will hold an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony at the cancer center to celebrate the partnership and new facility. Tours will be available from 2-4 p.m. and light refreshments will be served.
