Duke Health Affiliate in Cancer

Wilson Medical Center is now a Duke Health Affiliate in cancer. This relationship gives us access to the most current training and staff education when it comes to cancer and cancer-related health issues. We also have access to the latest Duke Cancer Institute guidelines and research. As the relationship progresses, our goal is to further enhance our service offerings to keep our patients here in the community, close to family and friends, to receive services such as clinical trials.
