Bingham Healthcare is partnering with Portneuf Medical Center to administer cancer treatments, based on a release from the hospital. Patients being treated by outside oncologists in other cities such as Idaho Falls, Boise or Salt Lake City may still receive chemotherapy in Blackfoot. That would mean patients could keep their medical providers while receiving chemotherapy close to home.
"We are extremely thankful for the chemotherapy and oncology services that Dr. Christian Shull has been providing to the community for the past 10 years," Jake Erickson, CEO at Bingham Healthcare, said in the release. "Earlier in the year, we identified a need to expand the availability of these services. By growing our oncology team, we are now able to provide even more Idahoans in this region easier access to oncology cancer treatments. This is what we are all about at Bingham Healthcare - always expanding service lines to help as many people as possible."
