Goshen Health Expands Patient Care Capabilities with The Centre, P.C. Affiliation

GOSHEN, Ind. – Patients faced with changes to their physical appearance caused by disease or medical treatment now have more options for care at Goshen Health, thanks to an affiliation between the Goshen Center for Cancer Care and the plastic surgeons at The Centre, P.C., in Mishawaka, Ind.

“This partnership expands our capabilities to perform additional complex cancer surgeries here in Goshen,” said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and Chief Executive Officer.

Goshen Center for Cancer Care specialists work closely with the plastic surgery team at The Centre, P.C. to coordinate services needed to repair, restore or reconstruct physical changes that affect how patients with cancer function and feel about themselves. Among the oncological procedures performed at Goshen Hospital will be breast reconstruction for women who have surgery as part of their breast cancer treatment.

“We’re excited about the affiliation with Goshen Health and the opportunity to bring plastic surgery services directly to patients in the Goshen area. Our staff is dedicated to the highest standards of care and work with patients to develop an effective procedure or treatment plan that exceeds each patient’s expectations,” said Ronald K. Downs, MD, FACS, Founder of The Centre, P.C.

Additionally, this partnership expands Goshen Health’s capabilities to offer non-cosmetic, non-oncology-related procedures to patients in Goshen and surrounding communities.
