Hematology & Medical Oncology

Sovah Cancer Center - Hematology & Medical Oncology provides medical oncology and hematology services. Previously located on Executive Drive, the Center moved to a newly remodeled space on the first floor of Sovah Health - Danville in 2017. Using a unique team-based approach, the medical onology team collaborates with Sovah Health's radiologists, pathologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists to design a specific treatment plan for each patient. Under the medical oncologist's supervision, our specially trained nurses administer chemotherapy and other supportive infusion services. Each patient is closely monitored to assess progress and treatment effectiveness.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are available in accordance with several academic based cancer centers and national affiliations. Membership in the Southeast Clinical Oncology Research Consortium (http://southeastcancercontrol.org) allows access to a variety of current national clinical trials. Outside of the membership with SCOR, Danville Hematology and Oncology also conducts research with Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center Comprehensive Cancer Center, Virginia Commonwealth University and the private pharmaceutical industry.

Making research available to our patients provides more treatment options. Clinical Trials include only the patients who choose to participate. In many cases, these trials can provide the most current treatment options available.

Patient Navigation

Patient navigation is offered throughout DRMC’s service area for patients with suspicious findings – through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. The navigator can meet the patient at the doctor’s office or may be requested by the patient at any time to access known or potential barriers to pursuing a diagnosis and treatment for disease. There is no charge for this service.
