Pleasant Valley Hospital (PVH) and the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center (ECCC) are working together to enhance cancer care for patients in Point Pleasant and surrounding communities. Mohamed Khasawneh, MD, and Toni Pacioles, MD, fellowship-trained medical oncologists/hematologists at the ECCC, have begun weekly visits to see patients at Pleasant Valley Hospital — extending the cancer care that is offered by the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center.
“We are thrilled to offer ECCC-caliber services to the Point Pleasant Community,” stated Glen Washington, FACHE, Pleasant Valley Hospital CEO. “This is an example of the types of opportunities for new and enhanced healthcare services that we envisioned last year, when we announced the partnership among Cabell Huntington Hospital, Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and Marshall Health physicians.”
Dr. Khasawneh completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He also completed an Oncology Fellowship at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute at the State University of New York and an Experimental Therapeutic Fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Dr. Khasawneh treats patients with all types of cancers, as well as blood and bleeding disorders.
Dr. Pacioles specializes in providing care for adults with cancer, blood disorders and cancers in the digestive system. He also has a special interest in geriatric oncology, which is the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in elderly patients. Dr. Pacioles earned his medical degree from the College of Medicine at the University of the Philippines in Manila, Philippines. He also completed his fellowship training in geriatric medicine and hematology/oncology at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York and his residency training in internal medicine at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.
Both Dr. Khasawneh and Dr. Pacioles provide care for patients with all types of cancers, as well as blood and bleeding disorders. Their regular presence at PVH offers cancer patients in the Point Pleasant area faster and more direct access to the ECCC’s highly specialized care, state-of-the-art therapies and leading-edge clinical trials. Cancer services at PVH continue to include chemotherapy, infusion services, diagnostic testing and patient education.
