CON for Mon General and WVU Hospitals approved

Hospitals will offer radiation therapy in joint venture

MORGANTOWN, W.VA. — The West Virginia Health Care Authority has approved the Certificate of Need (CON) that will allow Mon General Hospital and WVU Hospitals to work together to provide radiation therapy services to cancer patients in a new facility on Mon General’s campus. The two entities have formed a corporation to jointly own, operate, and provide care there with a new linear accelerator. The new corporation will also operate the Fairmont Regional Cancer Center.
 
Radiation oncology physicians and physicists from the WVU Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center will provide the clinical expertise for the new radiation therapy facility, in collaboration with oncologists who practice at Mon General Hospital’s Zelda Stein Weiss Cancer Center. As a result of the joint venture, the Weiss Cancer Center also will be affiliated with WVU’s Randolph Cancer Center.

Design and construction of the new $7 million facility will now move forward and is expected to be complete sometime in 2015.
