Texas Oncology is a leader in cancer treatment, with more than 220 centers across Texas and southeastern Oklahoma. All of these centers offer cutting-edge technology and treatment with a community-based approach to care. Integrating health technology platforms to improve care delivery and the health of the population is a priority for Texas Oncology. The United States Oncology Network, supported by McKesson Specialty Health, is comprised of nearly 1,200 physicians with experience in medical oncology, hematology, radiation oncology, gynecological oncology, urology, cancer surgery, and other specialties.
Texas Oncology has been meeting the oncology needs of Texans for more than 35 years. This includes the Texas Proton Therapy Center, Texas Breast Specialists, Texas Oncological Surgery Specialists, Texas Urology Specialists, and the Texas Interventional Surgery Center. The practice has also played a role in the development of more than 100 FDA-approved therapies and is one of the few authorized centers in the country that initially provides CAR-T therapy. The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 133,730 Texans will be diagnosed with cancer this year, including 20,900 new patients with breast cancer.
To support these patients, Texas Oncology uses evidence-based best practices to guide patient treatment across the network in a program known as Pathways. This program is in collaboration with the National Cancer Collaborative Network and provides genetic risk assessment, disease management, cancer survival, and advance care planning to improve the quality of the cancer patient process. Patients receiving treatment at Texas Oncology have the opportunity to participate in some of the most promising national clinical trials for a wide variety of cancers. Additionally, Texas Oncology connects patients to resources such as nutritional counseling, social services, financial counseling, and support groups.
Texas Oncology is an independent private practice with more than 500 doctors and 220 centers across the state. Eighteen specialties improve their portfolio of oncology services to communities served. Recently they began construction of a new 22,300-square-foot cancer care center in the Alliance Corridor that will provide medical oncology, hematology, radiation oncology, and infusion treatments all in one place.
