SPOKANE, WA - Cancer Care Northwest will now be offering full-time oncology and hematology services to communities in the Palouse region, thanks to a healthcare partnership between Cancer Care Northwest (CCNW) and Palouse Specialty Physicians (PSP). This specialty clinic will provide services and treatments for a range of cancer diagnoses and blood disorders within the Gritman Medical Office Building, located at 803 S Main Street, Ste 210, in Moscow, ID.
"Cancer Care Northwest is committed to fighting cancer, while providing the complete care and support our patients and their families need during treatment and healing" says Jennifer Heimbigner, Cancer Care Northwest CEO. "The collaboration between CCNW and PSP allows us to provide quality oncology care and support to patients who live in rural communities in the Palouse region, without requiring them to travel."
The clinic will be staffed by CCNW Medical Oncologist, Srijana Rai MD, and CCNW Nurse Practitioner, Megan E. O’Neil DNP, ARNP. Dr. Srijana Rai comes to the Palouse after completing a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
