Dr. Legaspi's Surgical Oncology Story

Jun 6, 2019

Our-Stories-LegaspiDr. Adrian Legaspi took on a big project soon after joining Palmetto General Hospital. In a matter of months he was in the midst of creating a world class surgical oncology center.

It's an ambitious undertaking, but Dr. Legaspi knows how desperately it is needed in the area.

"This area has been chronically underserved with premier surgical care for oncology," Dr. Legaspi says.  "I saw this as a great opportunity to create a world class center in an area that really deserves world class surgical care."

Dr. Legaspi gives credit to Palmetto’s CEO, Ana Mederos, who had and continues to have many conversations with him about the community’s needs and what the hospital needs to do to make the vision for the center a reality.

"So far it has been very rewarding," he says. "We have already created a number of things that were not present a few months ago, and we are well on our way to becoming a world class center for surgical oncology."
