West Clinic Continues Expansion Into Asian Market With Opening of Shanghai Cancer Center

Growing Cancer Care Pipeline Offers State-of-the-art Treatment

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- West Clinic, a recognized leader in cancer care, announced today the opening of West Clinic International Shanghai. The 7000 square foot, state-of-the art facility is being opened in collaboration with Shanghai Kanglian Hospital and will provide 'western-style' comprehensive cancer care. Shanghai represents the second center opened by Memphis-based West Clinic International during the past year. West Clinic International Singapore opened in October, 2006.

Tennessee Governor, Phil Bredesen, and Commissioner of Economic and Community Development, Matt Kisber, were present at today's official opening. The event coincides with the Governor's 9-day China Trade Mission which included the opening of the Tennessee-China Development Center in Beijing on October 18, 2007.

"West Clinic and literally hundreds of health care companies have made Tennessee a center for innovation and improvement in the quality of care delivery around the world," said Governor Bredesen. "The expansion of ties between Tennessee and China in the area of health care is a primary focus of this trade mission."

"The Chinese government has been very open with us about starting a dialogue on the development of facilities like the one announced today," said Commissioner Kisber. "West Clinic's expertise in this area is extremely valuable."

Steven Tucker, MD, FACP will serve as Medical Director for West Clinic International Shanghai. Tucker will continue his current role as Medical Director for West Clinic International Singapore while assuming responsibility for the Shanghai center. Dr. Tucker also serves as President of The International Medical Travel Association and Medical Director for the Accelerated Community Oncology Research Network (ACORN) - Asia Division.

The facility will house full-service laboratory and state-of-the-art imaging technologies including digital x-ray, ultrasound, echocardiography and mammography. The center will offer comprehensive oncology services and treatments including contemporary chemotherapy, novel targeted therapies, biological therapies, immunotherapy, and anti-angiogenic therapy in addition to genetic and nutritional counseling, palliative care, and pain management.

Access to the latest research and clinical trials will be available to patients through West Clinic International Shanghai's collaboration with the Accelerated Community Oncology Research Network (ACORN). Until recently, access to such clinical trials has been difficult or often impossible for patients in China.

According to Tucker, "The positive response from patients and families in Asia has been overwhelming. West Clinic International is privileged to offer comprehensive cancer care to such a large and expanding community of people. We are striving to work closely with and integrate into this advancing medical community."

West Clinic International Shanghai at Shanghai Kanglian Hospital is located at No. 388 Hongbaoshi Road, Sixth Floor, Changning District, and Shanghai 200336. For additional information please call +86 21 6270 4900; Fax +86 21 6270 4942; email:; visit
