As one of Ohio’s most comprehensive oncology programs, we are made up of a distinguished team of expert doctors, nurses and researchers using highly effective treatments at our cancer treatment centers in both Marietta and Belpre.
Memorial Health System’s Strecker Cancer Center in Marietta is the Mid-Ohio Valley’s first facility to be solely dedicated to the treatment of cancer. Our comprehensive approach to cancer care focuses on prevention, early detection, treatment and support. With locations in Marietta and Belpre, we combine the highest quality patient-centered care with the convenience of being close-to-home.
Strecker Cancer Center is a community comprehensive cancer center, an accreditation that ensures a patient will have access to:
- Quality care close to home.
- Comprehensive care offering a range of state-of-the-art services and equipment.
- A multispecialty team approach to coordinate the best treatment options available to cancer patients.
- Information about cancer clinical trials, education and support.
- Lifelong patient follow-up through a cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers and treatment results.
- Ongoing monitoring and improvement of care.
Since each patient’s situation is unique, our cancer specialists carefully review each individual’s record and tailor the treatment to best meet that patient’s needs. Once diagnosed, cancer patients often are treated with surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or a combination of these treatments. The best cancer care is a unique blend of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and support services such as nutritional counseling, pain management and social services.

Fighting Cancer with the Latest Medical Breakthroughs
Memorial Health System is one of the most active clinical trial sites in the state. Through ongoing nationally recognized cancer research and trials, we are able to offer treatments that won’t be available to the general public for months or even years from now. These clinical trials are conducted by our expert team of surgeons, physicians, specialists and nurses who are dedicated to improving the detection, treatment and outcome of cancer-related diseases. We are proud of our role in finding new ways to treat and beat cancer on all fronts.
Memorial Health System’s Strecker Cancer Center in Marietta provides access to clinical cancer trials to our community through an affiliation with Columbus Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP). Columbus CCOP is a consortium of central Ohio hospitals funded by the National Cancer Institute bringing the benefits of clinical research to cancer patients.
More than 100 clinical trials are presently available through Strecker Cancer Center. Included in these are cancer treatment as well as cancer prevention studies.
