Memorial Health System is one of the most active clinical trial sites in Ohio. 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, specialists, and providers who are dedicated to improving the detection, treatment, and outcomes of cancer-related diseases. We are proud of our role in finding new ways to treat and beat cancer on all fronts.

We involve patients at each step of the care process, and always keep them informed of what’s happening with their health care plan.
