Date:5/6/2009

Broadest Extension of M. D. Anderson Clinical Services Outside of Houston

PHOENIX, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Banner Health and The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center announced they will create the M. D. Anderson Banner Cancer Center here. The initiative joins Arizona's leading provider of health care and the nation's leading cancer center to provide patients and their families with an unprecedented level of cancer care in Arizona.

Located at US 60 and Higley Road on the campus of Banner Gateway Medical Center, the M. D. Anderson Banner Cancer Center is scheduled to open late in 2011 and will be anchored by a 120,000 square-foot cancer outpatient center and supported by 76 patient beds on two floors inside of Banner Gateway.

Services will include medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, pathology, laboratory, diagnostic imaging, as well as other supportive clinical services. M. D. Anderson will have clinical oversight for all aspects of care delivery.

"This is a great day for all people in Arizona who are touched by cancer," said Banner Health President and CEO Peter S. Fine. "We are bringing patients and their families the latest in knowledge-based cancer care, guided by the top cancer center in the country - M. D. Anderson."

For more than 60 years, M. D. Anderson has devoted itself to eradicating cancer through patient care, research, education and prevention at its main campus in Houston, Texas. The renowned center treats more cancer patients, offers access to more therapeutic clinical research exploring novel treatments, and has more National Cancer Institute-funded studies than any other cancer-fighting organization in the U.S.

"We've made great strides in our understanding and ability to effectively treat cancer, however, with our aging population we must be prepared to help many more people fight
