Announcements, Columbus, MS, Starkville

COLUMBUS, Miss., Nov. 12, 2012 – Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle has opened the Baptist Cancer Center-Golden Triangle/BMG Oncology and Cardiology clinic in Starkville.

The new clinic, located at 104 Doctor’s Park, includes an eight-bay chemotherapy unit, providing chemotherapy with a medical oncologist on site. There will also be a cardiologist in the clinic seeing patients on referral. An open house for the new facility will be held Thursday, Nov. 15, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

The new clinic will offer more convenient access for Baptist Golden Triangle patients, especially those who live west of Columbus.  By offering chemotherapy infusions in Starkville and a cardiologist to see patients, Baptist hopes to make care more convenient for those patients who would otherwise have to drive to Columbus.

“Our goal is to please our patients in Oktibbeha and surrounding counties with the new clinic opening,” said Tom Bailey, director of the Baptist Cancer Center-Golden Triangle. “With more treatment options in the area, our patients can receive even more timely care.”

Baptist Golden Triangle invested more than $600,000 in renovations to the building it leased from Oktibbeha County Hospital.

With 328 beds, Baptist Golden Triangle is the largest regional hospital affiliated with the Memphis, Tenn.-based Baptist Memorial Health Care system. With physicians and surgeons representing almost every medical specialty practicing at the hospital, Baptist Golden Triangle offers a wide range of comprehensive medical care to patients of all ages.

The hospital offers a variety of services to the community, including the BMHGT Cancer Center, Baptist Behavioral Health Care for those with behavioral and mental health problems, an emergency room with 24-hour ambulance service, an extensive rehabilitation department and educational programs.  Baptist Golden Triangle employs more than 1,000 health care professionals.
