Oncology and Hemotology at Wayne Memorial
Wayne Memorial Hospital has partnered with St. Joseph’s/Candler and the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion to bring cancer care closer to home for patients in Wayne County.
A new oncology center has been built with 16 infusion chairs located in semi-private bays and are equipped with comforts like televisions. The entire location was built for maximum comfort and calmness. The new building is located on the campus of Wayne Memorial in Jesup.

- IV Hydration/Electrolytes

The LCRP has a longstanding goal to bring the best cancer treatments to people where they live.
The program works collaboratively with the medical staffs at both hospitals to build a robust cancer program for the future by using the expertise of local specialists at Wayne Memorial and the experience of the programs and expertly trained team at the Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion. The centerpiece of the LCRP model is the Clinical Effectiveness Teams who meet regularly to assure best practices in treatment regimens offered. Physicians in Wayne will have opportunities to present cases for multi-disciplinary discussions with physicians in Savannah for individualized treatment plans.

Better access to cancer care, clinical trials
This joint venture also benefits from the expertise of the National Cancer Institute’s Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP), which the Lewis Caner & Research Pavilion has been a part of for more than six years. Georgia NCORP affords all Georgians deeper cancer services and boarder regional accessibility, with 110 oncology clinical providers in more than 40 different locations throughout the state. It also allows easier access to clinical trials and research to patients in their own local communities so they don’t have to travel far distances or leave loved ones.
