Saint Joseph Opens Cancer Center in Bardstown


Bardstown, KY

Saint Joseph Health System opened the Flaget Cancer Center at Flaget Memorial Hospital on August 5. Flaget Cancer Center is the first full-service cancer center in the county, removing the need for local residents to travel out of town for radiation cancer care. The center is equipped with a digital linear accelerator that allows clinicians to deliver radiation treatment precisely to the site of a tumor. The Flaget Cancer Center also includes private chemotherapy rooms and patient education areas in a calming setting that uses natural colors and materials.
