UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health
Orlando Health has formed a new partnership with the University of Florida to launch the UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando. Orlando Health, who used to be partners with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, is entering a new chapter as an institution with its new affiliation.
This switch will almost certainly result in positive changes, such as easier accessibility to clinical trials, cutting-edge technologies, as well as improved personal patient care. Orlando Health will continue its dedication towards improving accessibility to world-class cancer treatments, as well as patient satisfaction, education, and cancer research.
The new Center is slated to be the second NCI Designated Cancer Center in Florida, just behind the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. The UF Health Cancer Center encourages an integrative, multifaceted approach to patient care; this is an essential component of the hospital’s excellent status for the diagnosis and treatment of mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other conditions affecting the chest region of the body. Rod Taylor Thoracic Care Center specializes in treating these ailments with new technology, as well as advances thoracic cancer surgery. Luis Herrera, M.D., spearheads the cutting-edge Thoracic Care Center. Dr. Herrera specializes in treating thoracic ailments, and is particularly skilled with multimodality treatments (chemotherapy/radiation/surgery).
