Ochsner Health and MD Anderson Cancer Center have formed an alliance to create Ochsner MD Anderson Cancer Center in southeastern Louisiana, US.

This collaboration is claimed to provide cancer patients in the region with access to advanced treatments.

Ochsner is now the first and only provider in Louisiana to offer a fully integrated cancer programme based on MD Anderson’s standards and treatment plans.

Ochsner Health president and COO Mike Hulefeld said: “As the state’s leader in cancer care, we’re proud to partner with one of the global leaders in cancer care to provide a full continuum of services close to home for our patients.

“Beyond MD Anderson’s accolades and top national rankings, its clinicians and researchers advance innovative therapies through clinical trials several years before they become standard practice.

“Now, our patients will benefit from this expanded breadth of experience and therapies in Louisiana.”
