Certified MD Anderson Cancer Network® physicians

MD Anderson Cancer Network®, a program of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, selected two of Community Health Network’s hospitals to become Indiana’s first exclusive local affiliate. Nationally, Community is the first system to join the MD Anderson Cancer Network.

Community’s medical, surgical and radiation oncologists who have been certified by MD Anderson Cancer Network will initially treat cancer patients at Community Hospital North and Community Hospital East. Plans include having all Community Health Network hospital sites certified.

What does being an MD Anderson certified physician mean?

This collaboration will provide certified physicians 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.
