Approve Mon General Hospital's Certificate of Need for a New Radiation Oncology Center

      Mon General Hospital, Morgantown, WV

Comprehensive cancer care consists of three main therapies: surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. The new state-of-the-art radiation oncology center at Mon General Hospital's Zelda Stein Weiss Cancer Center will create a central location for all three therapies - including the radiation component.

Currently, our cancer patients must travel to other facilities for radiation.  This creates a complication in the lives of people who are already dealing with high stress levels.  Our patients deserve coordinated care under one roof.  The new radiation oncology center will provide that, including 6,200 square feet of new space and a radiation linear accelerator.

The new center will be built with $7 million in pledges and donations to the Foundation of Mon General Hospital.  No debt will be incurred.  Most importantly, the project will not add to the cost of cancer care and treatment.

The number of patients treated for cancer at Mon General Hospital grows each year.  The need for the new radiation oncology center is clear. 

We urge the WV Health Care Authority to swiftly approve the Certificate of Need to construct the new radiation oncology center for the sake of our patients who rely on us for coordinated care.
