Beaufort Memorial Hospital has acquired Sea Island Cancer Center, the longtime practice of Dr. Majd Chahin. His practice, now named Beaufort Memorial Medical Oncology, remains in the same location in the Beaufort Memorial Keyserling Cancer Center and continues to offer treatment for a wide array of cancers as well as benign hematological conditions.
Chahin, a board-certified hematology/oncology specialist, will continue to work with his staff, including advanced oncology nurse practitioners Kathryn Jones and Susanne Baisch.
Since opening his former practice in the Keyserling Cancer Center in 2006, Chahin has worked closely with Beaufort Memorial to develop a comprehensive cancer program to serve patients in the Lowcountry. He will continue to serve as both medical director of Beaufort Memorial Oncology Services and principal investigator for the hospital’s clinical trials program.
A graduate of Syria’s Tishreen University School of Medicine, Chahin completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Lutheran Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, followed by a three-year fellowship in hematology/oncology at Emory University School of Medicine.
Jones, born and raised in Beaufort, is an advanced oncology certified nurse practitioner. She began working with Chahin in 2003 after earning her bachelor’s degree from Clemson University’s Honors College and her master’s degree in nursing at the Medical University of South Carolina. Prior to that, she served as an RN first in the Beaufort Memorial Emergency Department, then on the hospital’s third floor.
Baisch, a longtime Beaufort resident who received a bachelor’s degree from Clemson University and master’s degree in nursing from the University of South Carolina, also holds an advanced oncology nurse practitioner certification. During her 17-year career as a health care provider, she worked as both a nurse and a nurse practitioner at Beaufort Memorial Hospital and several Lowcountry medical practices before joining Chahin’s practice in 2014.
