Date:9/25/2008

dical staff at Baylor Dallas. Dr. Stone is also the director of the Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center, which he opened in 1976.

"We've made enormous progress during the past 32 years, but now we're ready to rise to the next level, paralleling the striking advancements we've seen in the field," he said.

Breakthroughs in Cancer Care

The new cancer center will allow for a more comprehensive personalized medicine program, including areas of research such as targeted therapy. Targeted therapy allows physicians to analyze a patient's genes and determine what type of treatment will work best for that particular patient.

"These approaches will move the entire field forward, and we're already applying them in certain kinds of leukemia, lymphoma, breast, lung and colon cancer," said Dr. Stone. "There's going to be a tremendous increase in our ability to make more accurate diagnoses and target therapy in individual patients. These approaches will be more effective and produce fewer side effects."

Beyond targeted therapy, the new cancer center will allow clinicians to engage in further cancer research, focusing on breakthroughs that directly affect patients, whether through a more accurate diagnosis, a faster recovery or a more effective treatment. In addition, clinical trial participation will be expanded beyond the more than 150 trials already offered to patients.

Compassionate, Convenient Care

Based on feedback from patients, families, physicians and staff, the new cancer center is designed to transform patients' experiences from the moment they walk through the door. The patient-centered facility is designed to anticipate patient needs throughout the continuum of care. From patient navigators providing support throughout the journey to a coffee bar with free Wi-Fi access, the center will provide compassionate, convenient care for the whole patient.

Caring for patients and families has always played a large role i
