In Growth Spurt Since Joining OneOncology, The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders in Fort Worth Adds 3 Practices and 14 Physicians
The Center Has Grown its Physicians on Staff by 60 Percent in a Single Year
Fort Worth, TX & Nashville, TN – July 12, 2021 – Three oncology practices with a combined total of ten physicians have recently joined The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (The Center), the growing North Texas independent oncology practice, an affiliate of OneOncology, announced today.
In addition, four physicians are joining these practices – a gynecologic oncologist, two radiation oncologists and a fellowship-trained breast surgeon – who will care for patients at new practice locations across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The physicians were all recruited by OneOncology, the national platform for independent oncology practices. Since joining OneOncology eight months ago, The Center has now added 14 physicians across four specialties, which represents more than 60 percent increase in physicians on staff. By adding oncology specialists across the continuum of care, these new physicians will enhance the patient-centered approach to caring for patients for which The Center is known.
“Our partnership with OneOncology has afforded us the opportunity to grow and offer our patients additional services along the continuum of care,” said Ray Page, DO, PhD, FACOI, FASCO, President of The Center. “At The Center we pride ourselves on providing our patients with the highest-quality holistic care options close to home for any cancer diagnosis. For us, it’s not just about treating cancer, it’s about healing lives. That’s why adding physicians from different specialties to our practice is so important. Having the ability to attract new practices to join The Center and bring on additional physicians shows how the OneOncology partnership enhances our care delivery.”
The practices that are now part of The Center are:
- North Texas Gynecologic Oncology: Two gynecological oncologists caring for patients across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. With OneOncology resources and a commitment to train the next generation of gynecological oncologists in North Texas, the practice has recently brought on a fellow to support Drs. Thomas Heffernan and Alan Munoz.
- Choice Cancer Care: With four medical oncologists and one radiation oncologist, this independent network of physician-owned cancer center cares for patients in Plano, Lewisville, Southlake, Las Colinas and Decatur, Texas. The Las Colinas clinic has medical oncology, radiation oncology services and state of the art PET/CT technology.
- Denton Cancer Center: Two medical oncologists providing services on the campus of Presbyterian Hospital and at a satellite clinic in Gainesville.
“Dallas is a competitive market in oncology. Practices have strong partnership opportunities and physicians have choices when it comes to where they care for patients,” said Jeff Patton, MD, CEO, OneOncology. “To grow rapidly in eight months shows the strengths of The Center’s partnership with OneOncology and our commitment to fuel practice growth and invest in attracting top-notch physicians that provide services across the continuum of oncology care.”
