Memorial Names New Medical Director for Cancer Program - 4/08/05

Memorial Hospital recently announced the addition of Patrick Faricy, M.D., as the new medical director for the hospital’s cancer program. Faricy has close ties to the Colorado Springs community and Memorial Hospital, and has worked closely with Memorial’s cancer center since it opened in 1992.

“Dr. Faricy is a valuable addition to Memorial Hospital’s team as we continue to deliver first-rate cancer care to the people in our community,” said Theresa Heckel, associate administrator for Oncology Services at Memorial Hospital. “He will be very instrumental in building physician relationships and assisting in setting the strategic direction of our program.”

Under the direction of Faricy and Medical Director Dr. Mark Hazuka, Memorial’s Radiation Oncology continues to build on its reputation for effective treatment of prostate cancer. Faricy and Hazuka also were the first to bring prostate brachytherapy (radiation seed implants) to Colorado Springs.
