Vice President and Executive Dean for Health Sciences Clay Marsh, MD, has named a team of physicians to oversee all clinical programs and activities at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center (MBRCC) at West Virginia University.
Hannah Hazard, MD, has been named surgeon-in-chief and director of clinical services, and Michael Craig, MD, will serve as the Cancer Center’s physician-in-chief of oncology.

The members of the leadership team have already had tremendous impact on scores of patients, he said, adding, “The reputation that we have at MBRCC as a place where patients can expect both the highest quality of cancer care and an atmosphere of safety, quality and cutting-edge clinical care is due in large part to their work and the work of those they lead.”
