Good Samaritan Announces The Arrival Of A New Oncologist

Good Samaritan is proud to welcome a new physician to their oncology team, Cassandra Lacher, DO, MHA. Dr. Lacher received her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2011 and recently completed her Hematology/Oncology Fellowship at McLaren Greater Lansing. Her love for science and people led her to becoming a physician. “I’ve come to appreciate that the specialty of hematology and oncology really allows me to do all the things that I love,” said Dr. Lacher. “I am able to care for people during vulnerable and difficult times, manage complicated illnesses, evaluate for underlying genetic predispositions, provide people with the support they need to meet their goals, and provide comfort and hope even in the most dark and scary situations.”

Becoming a part of the community and the Good Samaritan family was an obvious choice for Dr. Lacher and her family. She is impressed with the relationships between all members of the patient’s care team and the emphasis placed on quality of life in managing patient disease processes. Dr. Lacher and her husband, Marcus, reside in Vincennes with their two sons and dogs. When she is not seeing patients, Dr. Lacher enjoys being involved with her church, singing and playing the bass guitar, playing board games, spending time with her family and watching St. Louis Cardinals games.

Dr. Lacher is currently accepting new patients at Good Samaritan’s Cancer Pavilion located at 520 S. Seventh Street. To make an appointment, call 812-886-6565.
