Camden Clark’s cancer center, the Community Comprehensive Cancer Center, has changed its name to WVU Cancer Institute – Camden Clark Regional Cancer Center, effective immediately. The name change and rebranding were announced at a ceremony Oct. 29 in Parkersburg.

“The WVU Cancer Institute – Camden Clark Regional Cancer Center is the first step in what will be a statewide network of cancer facilities focused on delivering the highest quality of cancer care,” Albert L. Wright, Jr., president and CEO, WVU Medicine – WVU Hospitals, said. “It won’t matter where patients receive care – in Parkersburg, in Morgantown or at other WVU Cancer Institute locations – they can be assured that they’ll receive the same level of care. And providers at all WVU Cancer Institute facilities will work together to ensure continuity of care.”

“I am very proud of Camden Clark’s partnership with WVU Medicine and what the relationship provides to our patients,” Dave McClure, president and CEO, WVU Medicine – Camden Clark, said. “The enhancements provided by the WVU Cancer Institute will elevate our cancer care to a new level and provide a direct path to WVU for very specialized care.”

Camden Clark is a member of the WVU Medicine health system.

In attendance representing WVU and WVU Medicine, along with Wright and McClure, were E. Gordon Gee, WVU president; Christopher C. Colenda, M.D., president and CEO, WVU Medicine; and Hannah Hazard, M.D., director of clinical services and surgeon-in-chief at WVU Cancer Institute.
