Affiliation with the cancer network and certified Anderson oncologists brings higher quality cancer care to local Anderson community

Anderson, IN---Today at a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new Cancer Center, Community Hospital Anderson announced that its cancer program is now affiliated with MD Anderson Cancer Network®, a program of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The affiliation means the certified physicians have access to evidence-based guidelines, treatment plans and concordance studies provided by MD Anderson experts.

“We are very proud to have achieved this milestone in providing cancer care for patients in Madison County,” said Beth Tharp, president of Community Hospital Anderson. “Our affiliation with the national network of one of the top cancer centers in the nation means that local patients can receive MD Anderson quality of care standards close to home,.
