NEW ONCOLOGIST COMES TO OXFORD RENOWNED ONCOLOGIST EDWARD CRANE, M.D., IS NOW SEEING PATIENTS AT MHMH, EXPANDING THE AVAILABILITY OF CANCER CARE LOCALLY.

Highly regarded Cincinnati oncologist Edward Crane, M.D., has joined TriHealth, and is now offering appointments two days a week at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital |TriHealth. Dr. Crane is one of two oncologists who see patients on-site, so a cancer specialist is now available in Oxford four days each week. Dr. Crane trained at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute in Tampa, Fla., one of the top cancer centers in the country. Over the past 11 years, he has built a reputation as a leading medical oncologist/hematologist in the tri-state area, treating a wide range of cancers and helping patients throughout their cancer journey. “Dr. Crane is a brilliant doctor, yet

so humble,” says Benita Cannane, a long-term patient of Dr. Crane’s from Springfield, who has been seeing him for five years for a rare form of ovarian cancer. “He’s always willing to listen, he’s always fighting for you, and he never makes you feel like you have to give up hope.” Dr. Crane says he made the move to MHMH because of the tight-knit community in Oxford and the quality of care and expertise available through the TriHealth system. “I grew up in rural Illinois, so I really like the sense of family and duty to the patient at McCullough-Hyde,” says Dr. Crane. “I also get to work with a great mix of patients, from college professors to farmers.”

In addition to the two days a week he’s seeing patients at MHMH, Dr. Crane is helping to create supportive cancer clinics for TriHealth that focus on relieving pain and improving quality of life for patients and their loved ones. “I’ve had several family members who succumbed to cancer, so I understand the burden,” says Dr. Crane. “My goal is to always provide the same high-quality care for my patients that I would expect for my own family.” Now that Dr. Crane’s practice has moved to Oxford, Benita says she plans to continue driving from Springfield to Oxford for all her appointments. “There’s nobody like him, and I wouldn’t go to anyone else,” she says. “I feel special every time I talk to him.”

MY GOAL IS TO ALWAYS PROVIDE THE SAME HIGHQUALITY CARE FOR MY PATIENTS THAT I WOULD EXPECT FOR MY OWN FAMILY.” —EDWARD CRANE, M.D., ONCOLOGIST
