  • Kansas City Cancer Center physicians will become members of The University of Kansas Physicians and faculty of The University of Kansas Medical Center, specifically in the departments of Internal Medicine, Radiation Oncology, and Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.

Leaders of all organizations involved see the proposed combination as an opportunity to provide greater access to customized, comprehensive, patient-centered care, by integrating unprecedented access to physicians and leading-edge technology.  The vision of The University of Kansas Cancer Center and Kansas City Cancer Center is to partner as national leaders in patient care and support The University of Kansas Cancer Center's education and research missions, to contribute to the elimination of the cancer burden by achieving and maintaining National Cancer Institute comprehensive cancer center designation.

"The partnership of two premier cancer centers further makes Kansas City a destination for cancer patients throughout the Midwest with options for treatment locations, technologies and sub-specialists," said Bob Page, president and chief executive officer of The University of Kansas Hospital.  "Together, as national leaders in patient care, this partnership further strengthens both organizations' approach of treating the whole person with the most effective therapies in a patient-centered environment close to home."
