this disease," said Thomas W. Burke, M.D., executive vice president and Physician-in-Chief at M. D. Anderson. "The M. D. Anderson Banner Cancer Center is a key collaboration in a fast-growing area where we can truly make a difference with leading-edge therapies and prevention."

The anticipated groundbreaking for the M. D. Anderson Banner Cancer Center outpatient center is late 2009 or early 2010. The architectural firm for the project is Cannon Design and the general contractor is DPR Construction, Inc. The center will be modeled after M. D. Anderson's Houston outpatient clinics that feature individual areas for specific cancers. This center represents a $90 million project that will be funded by nonprofit Banner Health through bonds.

Leading Together

The M. D. Anderson Banner Cancer Center represents M. D. Anderson's most comprehensive extension of its patient care outside of Houston. For Banner Health, the center is its largest collaboration with a partner.

Since the survey's inception, M. D. Anderson has consistently been recognized in the US News&World Report "Best Hospitals" survey as the nation's number one or two cancer hospital. In the past four out of six years this top recognition has been attained, including the most recent 2008 survey.

Banner Health is one of the few hospital systems in the country that is far along in the implementation of digital health records into all of its hospitals. Banner Gateway already features an electronic medical records system and computerized physician order and entry systems. "We believe this capability will offer a strong foundation for excellent patient care in the M. D. Anderson Banner Cancer Center," said Fine.
