Georgetown Cancer Center Georgetown Kentucky

Through the collaborative efforts with the UK Markey Cancer Center Affiliate Network, Central Kentucky Cancer Center is able to offer our patients the newest treatment options and emerging technologies conveniently located in two locations: Georgetown, Kentucky (Scott County) and Winchester, Kentucky (Clark County).

With a high staff-to-patient ratio, our patients are afforded the proper attention they deserve, while the staff gets to know each one as an individual. We understand that battling cancer can have enough challenges. That is why we designed one-of-a-kind care plans that cater to each patient’s distinct needs, and developed a support program through our nurse navigators and patient care coordinators. Together they reassure and guide patients and families through all the uncertainties of cancer treatment. At Central Kentucky Cancer Care, our specialists and staff are committed to treating you with compassion and your cancer with the most advanced diagnostics, techniques and cancer treatment available.

We’re working to eliminate barriers to care in the communities we serve. BEING CLOSE TO HOME MATTERS, BECAUSE EVERY MOMENT MATTERS.

At Central Kentucky Cancer Care (CKCC), we recognize that your quality of life throughout the course of your cancer treatment requires multiple levels of support and energy. As part of the personal care and consideration our patients deserve, we offer a broad range of resources, support mechanisms and ancillary services to help manage the many components of treatment, so patients can focus their attention on getting well. Having these services offered in our local communities is an important factor to our patient care. It allows patients to stay close to home, near family and their support network. It saves commute time, lowers their stress and conserves a patient’s energy that is better spent resting and recovering.

Having a cancer treatment facility close to home allows patients to stay close to their family and support network. This lowers stress, saves commute time and conserves a patient’s energy that is better spent recovering. But more importantly, it offers improved care and peace of mind.
