MD Anderson Cancer Network® affiliation

Community Health Network has first exclusive Indiana affiliation with MD Anderson

Collaboration means certified oncologists at Community Hospitals North and East bring new hope for Indiana cancer patients

Community Hospital North and Community Hospital East are affiliates of MD Anderson Cancer Network®, a program of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. This collaboration provides certified physicians at these two Community hospitals with access to evidence-based guidelines, treatment plans and concordance studies developed by MD Anderson experts. These are disease-specific guidelines for cancer treatment, cancer prevention, early detection and follow-up care, bringing new hope to local cancer patients by using treatment guidelines developed by a national leader in cancer care. For nine of the past 11 years, including 2012, MD Anderson has ranked number one in cancer care in the “Best Hospitals” survey published by U.S. News & World Report.

“This is a game changer for our network,” said Community Health Network President and CEO, Bryan Mills. “By teaming up with MD Anderson Cancer Network, we’re combining the best of what we provide locally with the world-renown expertise of MD Anderson. Professionals in the medical field know the MD Anderson name very well, as it’s the gold standard for cancer care. Through our exclusive local affiliation, we’ll help to raise the standard of cancer care in Central Indiana.”

Community oncologists now certified by MD Anderson Cancer Network will initially treat cancer patients at Community Hospital North and Community Hospital East. Plans are to seek MD Anderson Cancer Network certification of cancer centers at Community Hospital Anderson, Community Howard Regional Health, and at Community Hospital South.

“Community Health Network has a long tradition of providing exceptional health care in Central Indiana. We’re excited about this new relationship, which will further enhance patient care by adding MD Anderson expertise,” said Bill Murphy M.D., chairman, MD Anderson Physicians Network. "Together, we’ll ensure that patients across Indiana have access to the highest quality cancer care available."
