The Mesa County Commissioners presented the Clinical Trials Awareness Day proclamation, and emphasized the important work Community Hospital’s oncology staff is doing.

For nearly five years, the partnership between Community Hospital and The Hunstman Cancer Institute has opened up a larger range of options for cancer patients on the Western Slope.

This includes more options when it comes to clinical trials and customized treatment plans.

Community Hospital’s Grand Valley Oncology now offers nearly a dozen clinical trials including breast, melanoma, prostate, bladder, leukemia and more.
