The Cancer Registry at WCCH
The American College of Surgeons accredits the Cancer Program at Wythe County Community Hospital. The State of Virginia requires all hospitals to collect information on all cancer that is diagnosed at our facility. This information is transmitted to the Virginia Central Cancer Registry to be used in planning cancer prevention and control programs. Another function of the Cancer Registry is to offer cancer patients a variety of needed services, which are available on and off site.
Our Cancer Registry is responsible for providing our patients information about cancer research in the form of clinical trials. In addition to our cancer registry, the following services are available at WCCH for all of our cancer patients: mammography services, American Cancer Society’s “Reach to Recovery,” “I Can Cope Program,” “Look Good, Feel Better” and “Can Surmount Support Group.” For more information, call the Cancer Registry at 228-0200.
