“Over my career, I was consistently asked to bring high-quality cancer care to our community. At Reynolds Memorial Hospital, we feel it is vitally important to meet the needs and standards of our patients and their families,” David Hess, M.D., president and CEO of Reynolds Memorial, said. “We are so fortunate to be a part of WVU Medicine’s mission to offer highly specialized cancer treatment to patients in the comfort and convenience of their community hospital.”

The 3,606 square-foot facility is conveniently located next to the hospital. The medical oncology and hematology clinic is staffed by Nabiel AlKhouri, M.D., a full-time WVU Cancer Institute physician. Dr. AlKhouri is supported by an experienced team of nurses, therapists, social workers, and other clinical staff from Reynolds Memorial. He sees any diagnosis of oncology and hematology patient.

“The cancer center at Reynolds Memorial allows a partnership between specialists at our academic center and a team of local providers,” AlKhouri said. “Patients at this center get WVU-quality care close to home with local access to selected clinical trials. When appropriate, they will get an expedited referral to the specialized services that are provided in Morgantown.”
