Columbia Memorial Hospital

The Columbia Memorial Hospital Cancer Center in Astoria Oregon offers  chemotherapy, imaging, pharmacy and other services in one building for  individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer.

The cancer center’s medical director is Jennifer Lycette, M.D., a medical oncologist from OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and the oncology nurse practitioner  is Anne Hulstrom, N.P., P.P.

Building the CMH Cancer Center

The cancer center was a joint effort between Columbia Memorial  Hospital, OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, Dr. Sonny Park, and the City of  Astoria. The center is housed in the Park Medical Center across the street from  the hospital. The mayor of Astoria and the administrator of the hospital  brought the town together around the common goal of providing oncology care in  their community. The Astoria City Council approved a $300,000 urban renewal  grant to build the cancer center, the hospital foundation supplied the  furnishings, CMH Auxiliary Volunteers provided the 10 infusion chairs Clatsop  Community College Art Department and local potters donated art for the center.  OHSU worked with the community to bring an oncologist in to coordinate the  entire process.

Coming soon

The CMH/OHSU Knight  Cancer Collaborative will expand on CMH’s existing chemotherapy treatment  services. Read more about radiation therapy on the North Coast.
