Lourdes Health System and 21st Century Oncology Sign Joint Venture

21st Century Oncology, a nationally recognized provider of integrated cancer care services, and Lourdes Health System have signed a Joint Venture agreement establishing a partnership to deliver community-based cancer services.

“At 21st Century Oncology, our goal is to consistently provide high quality cancer care, close to home,” says Daniel Dosoretz, M.D., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of 21st Century Oncology. “Through collaboration with Lourdes Health System, cancer patients will have access to comprehensive care throughout their journey to recovery.”

For some time, 21st Century Oncology physicians have been working closely with members of Lourdes Health System’s cancer program administrators and key clinicians to establish a seamless pathway for patients to access services. The Joint Venture establishes 21st Century Oncology as the exclusive provider of radiation therapy services for the Lourdes Health System Cancer Program, offering patients access to advanced technology. In addition, a cancer navigator, part of the support services offered through their affiliation, has been working to develop relationships within Lourdes and the community to assist patients in their transitions from diagnosis and throughout treatment.

“The joint venture formalizes our long-standing relationship with 21st Century Oncology, which shares many of our same values,” explained Alexander J. Hatala, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lourdes Health System. “Their excellent physicians, their focus on quality and emphasis on education make for an ideal partnership. We look forward to the furtherance of our relationship with them through the development of new clinical and support services for the benefit of our patients, families and the community at large,” he added.

For more than 30 years, 21st Century Oncology has been committed to providing state-of-the-art, high quality radiation therapy and other cancer treatments in a patient-centric setting focused on continuous innovation. Through this partnership, 21st Century Oncology and Lourdes Health System will extend their excellent clinical care to the community.
