Mission Cancer Transition FAQ

On January 1, Mission Health will be providing medical oncology and hematology services through our new practice, Mission Medical Oncology.

Below are a list of resources and frequently asked questions:

What is happening?

Cancer Care of Western North Carolina (CCWNC), a medical oncology practice, has decided to end its relationship with Mission Cancer Care as of December 31, 2019. In order to maintain continuity of care and continue offering medical oncology services, Mission Health is building a new practice, Mission Medical Oncology.

For your convenience, Mission Medical Oncology will use the same contact information and will practice out of the same locations in which CCWNC had practiced previously.

Will you continue to offer the same services?

Yes, Mission Medical Oncology will continue to offer the same services, locations and facilities you’ve come to rely on. We will continue to deliver comprehensive cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, supportive care and survivorship to residents throughout western North Carolina. All of our other cancer-related services will also continue, including Hope Women’s, Mission Radiation Oncology, Mission Infusion, Mission Radiology, Mission Cancer Specialties Clinic, etc.

What if I have questions?

We have established a dedicated call center to assist you with any questions about this transition and your care options. Please call us at 828-213-6400, and our staff will be happy to assist you.

Members of our care team are ready to work with you to schedule any necessary visits for 2020, and we look forward to serving you in the new year.

Can I choose to move with my CCWNC doctor?

Yes – we understand that you have a choice about where to receive your care. Note that even if you choose to receive care from a provider who is not a part of Mission Medical Oncology, you can continue to receive your infusion and other services from Mission.

If you choose to stay with us at Mission Medical Oncology, you will continue to receive the same high quality care you have come to expect from us.

Will my insurance coverage be affected?

Contact your insurance provider to ensure that any provider you choose is in your insurer’s network.
