November 1, 2013

Today, Ohio Cancer Specialists (OCS) of Mansfield, Ohio, signed an agreement to become part of the Cleveland Clinic health system.

The agreement will make OCS, a full-service cancer treatment center with 43 employees, a part of Cleveland Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Institute, which is ranked in the top 10 nationally for cancer care by U.S. News and World Report. Their employees and physicians will also be Cleveland Clinic employees.

“The OCS team provides wonderful, state-of-the-art treatment to its patients, and we look forward to enhancing the excellent clinical care that Ohio Cancer Specialists provide,” said Brian J. Bolwell, MD, Chairman of Cleveland Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Institute. “By linking OCS’s services with Cleveland Clinic, patients will have access to the latest clinical trials and an electronic medical record that will help bring coordinated, cutting-edge care close to home.”

OCS and its team of four physicians have long served patients in Richland, Crawford, Ashland, Huron, Knox and Morrow counties from three locations in Mansfield, Shelby and Willard, Ohio. The main office in Mansfield will continue to provide all outpatient cancer services, including consultations in hematology and oncology, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, diagnostic services and patient support. The two satellite locations in Willard and Shelby will continue to provide medical oncology services. The practice will be called Cleveland Clinic Cancer Centers across all locations.

“As the leading provider of cancer services in the region, we are pleased to be joining our efforts with the No. 1 cancer program in Ohio at Cleveland Clinic,” said Donald L. Dewald, MD of Ohio Cancer Specialists. “This partnership allows Ohio Cancer Specialists to continue to grow in quality and depth of services and to better serve the community.”

Since its inception in 1921, Cleveland Clinic has been at the forefront of cancer breakthroughs. Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists have developed new surgical techniques, discovered new treatments and uncovered key information about cancer cells that have resulted in significant changes in the way patients are screened, diagnosed and treated.
