Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Grove City Hospital announced today that AHN surgical oncologist Casey Allen, MD is now providing advanced care for patients there.
Dr. Allen earned his medical degree in his hometown at the University of Nevada, in Las Vegas, and completed his general surgical residency at the University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida. He completed his fellowship in surgical oncology at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
Dr. Allen specializes in the surgical treatment of complex tumors, caring for patients with primary and metastatic intra-abdominal cancers, skin and soft tissue malignancies, as well as those with rare diseases including sarcoma and neuroendocrine tumors.
His specific interest in providing evidence- and value-based individualized treatment for patients has brought Dr. Allen national recognition as a speaker at some of the industry’s most prominent medical and scientific conferences. He has published more than 70 research papers and has been the lead author for numerous book chapters focusing on those topics.
“The addition of Dr. Allen to our team of physicians here at AHN Grove City represents a significant advancement in the depth and breadth of specialty care we can now provide to patients,” said David Tupponce, MD, AHN Grove City President. “Dr. Allen’s level of expertise is not typically available through community-based hospitals, and as part of AHN’s outstanding Cancer Institute, we are extremely fortunate to have him here.”
Dr. Allen will provide pre-and post-operative care for patients at AHN Grove City. He can perform surgical procedures at both AHN Grove City and the nearby AHN Wexford Hospital. For information, or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Allen, contact 412-DOCTORS.
About AHN Grove City
AHN Grove City is a 67-bed acute care hospital located in Pine Township, Mercer County. Formerly Grove City Medical Center, the hospital has served the community for more than 40 years and is the result of the merger of two smaller community hospitals, both of which were founded in the early 1900s. Since the hospital became part of the Allegheny Health Network (AHN.org) in January 2020, the team of physicians caring for patients has grown to include specialists and subspecialists, while new and formerly available programs have been added, including women’s health.
