A Powerful Partnership to Fight Cancer
Adventist HealthCare has joined forces with leading organizations to provide comprehensive and compassionate cancer care services to the community.
If you are diagnosed with cancer, knowing that you can count on a team of compassionate and experienced medical providers with access to the latest information and technology is critical. That is the kind of care you can expect to receive at the White Oak Cancer Center.
Located on the campus of Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center, the White Oak Cancer Center is a collaboration between Adventist HealthCare, Maryland Oncology Hematology (MOH) and The US Oncology Network (The Network). Together, these organizations are on a mission to deliver comprehensive care.
“Adventist HealthCare is excited about working with The U.S. Oncology Network and Maryland Oncology Hematology of Silver Spring,” said Anthony Stahl, president, Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center. “Together, we are providing our patients with a full range of high-quality, interdisciplinary cancer care services, including high-tech and innovative approaches, additional expertise and coordination, all while keeping each patient’s well-being at the center of their care.”
ABOUT OUR PARTNERS
MOH is the biggest independent oncology practice in the state of Maryland. With more than 45 practicing clinicians on the team, MOH is committed to delivering comprehensive, high-quality cancer care with compassion. They are devoted to the concept that cancer therapies should be delivered close to patients’ homes and networks of support in their communities. Specialties of MOH include medical oncology and hematology, as well as cancer genetic risk assessment and patient ancillary programs. MOH also participates in research and clinical trials through US Oncology Research, which has been involved with more than 95 cancer therapies approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
MOH is included in The Network community. Supported by McKesson Corp., The Network is designed to help local practices improve cancer care, maintain independence and thrive. The Network does this by bringing together more than 1,200 independent clinicians who are committed to providing integrated and value-based care in the communities of the patients they serve. Clinicians in The Network share expertise and resources with one another in a collective effort to enhance local cancer care and improve patient outcomes. This integrated structure frees up physicians to focus on patient care, trusting that McKesson is concentrating on the health of their businesses.
