CAMC welcomes the Carl Larson Cancer Center, located in Beckley, to CAMC Health System and Vandalia Health. The transaction to purchase the center was finalized in December, and CAMC has received all necessary regulatory and governance approvals.
The practice is made up of three physicians, 11 advanced practice professionals and support staff. They have provided high quality oncology services for decades in the Beckley area.
The practice was created in the mid-1980s. It provides hematology, oncology, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, diagnostic laboratory and diagnostic imaging services.
Primary treatment modes are chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Additional services include a superficial treatment unit, high-dose radiation brachytherapy and 3D treatments.
The diagnostic component of the center provides radiologic services and laboratory testing. Radiology services include CT scanning, mammography, bone density and radiographic X-rays, all of which are digital.
The laboratory is licensed by both the Commission on Office Laboratory Accreditation and CLIA Program (part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services).
The location is now named the CAMC Cancer Center - Beckley as part of CAMC Health System. CAMC will work with the physicians, providers and staff to expand services available to the community and provide additional capacity for procedures.
