Beaufort Memorial Hospital has opened a new oncology practice headed by longtime Lowcountry Medical Group oncologist Marcus Newberry III, MD, along with a new chemotherapy and infusion center.

Located on the main hospital campus, on the third floor of Beaufort Medical Plaza, 989 Ribaut Rd., Beaufort Memorial Oncology Specialists offers treatment for a wide array of cancers, as well as benign hematological conditions.

As a board-certified internist, Newberry helped found Lowcountry Medical Group in 1997. After practicing internal medicine for six years, he returned to school and completed a fellowship in medical oncology at the Medical University of South Carolina.

He has been practicing medical oncology at the recently renamed Beaufort Memorial Lowcountry Medical Group since 2004.

In addition to treating cancer patients, Newberry will provide medical supervision of a new chemotherapy and outpatient infusion center BMH opened in conjunction with the oncology practice.

Beaufort Memorial Chemotherapy & Infusion Services is located on the ground floor of the same BMH medical building in Suite 120. It has been remodeled to include two private treatment rooms and a group room with 12 infusion recliners where patients can receive blood transfusions, chemotherapy and other medications administered through a needle or catheter.
