The University of Kansas Cancer Center and U.S. Oncology-Affiliated Kansas City Cancer Center to Merge Operations to Promote Patient Care and Research
Date:3/8/2011

KANSAS CITY, Kan., March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Kansas Cancer Center and Kansas City Cancer Center (KCCC) announced today they will combine operations, creating an outpatient cancer care organization.  The partnership will expand opportunities for advanced cancer research, Phase I clinical research trials and supports the efforts of National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation.  Current and future patients will have greater access to 50 hematologists, oncologists and radiation oncologists at 12 locations, offering the most comprehensive cancer care in the region.

This partnership will unite two premier cancer centers, combining the area's leading community-based oncology program with the area's premier academic medical center to create an unprecedented approach to cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship for patients in this region and a national model for cancer care delivery.

Kansas City Cancer Center is part of the United Network of U.S. Oncology.  U.S. Oncology will remain part of the operation by providing some proprietary products and will collaborate on research. Patients of The University of Kansas Cancer Center will have additional access to research projects through U.S. Oncology.

"The University of Kansas Cancer Center is one of the first academic medical centers where we will have established an affiliated relationship," said Bruce Broussard, chief executive officer, U.S. Oncology.  "Adding that to our continuing relationship with Kansas City Cancer Center will advance cancer care and clinical research in the local community and nationally."

Just as The University of Kansas Cancer Center will continue serving patients through its multi-disciplinary approach in an academic medical center setting, Kansas City Cancer Center will have the same group of physicians and medical staff available to their patients at the same community-based locations and community hospitals
