Warrensburg, MO (May 28, 2021) — Western Missouri Medical Center (WMMC) has officially opened the Western Missouri Cancer Center as of April 5, 2021, bringing highly specialized cancer care to our community. The Western Missouri Cancer Center is located in the main hospital and is adjacent to the Western Missouri Infusion Center. The opening of this clinic is a significant step forward for WMMC and will support the hospital’s mission to be the regional preferred provider of exceptional health care services.

Recognizing that many types of cancer require specialists with highly focused knowledge, the Western Missouri Cancer Center has partnered with Midamerica Cancer Care to offer providers who possess unique cancer expertise. “This endeavor is a significant step forward in our vision to be the leader in comprehensive cancer care for our greater community,” says Darinda J. Dick, President/CEO of WMMC. “We are excited to partner with Midamerica Cancer Care because they are willing to grow with us and meet the needs in our rural area.”

By partnering with the Midamerica Cancer Care, WMMC will be able to provide oncology services that will give WMMC more autonomy to lead the vision for cancer care and adapt to our patients’ growing needs. Led by renowned and board-certified cancer specialist Jaswinder Singh, MD, the specialty team includes Preethi Ramchandran, MD, a hematologist-oncologist who is board certified in internal medicine, and Shea Fijal, FNP-BC, who has spent her career caring for underserved populations and working to get them the care they so desperately deserve. Dr. Singh is an internationally recognized researcher in multiple publications and remains an advocate for clinical trials for the benefit of the patient.
