New Orleans, LA –
The partnership between the two medical leaders began in 2008 and is centered on combining LSUSHC, the state’s largest medical research facility, with Ochsner, the state’s largest clinical provider, to bring better local access to comprehensive cancer care. Patients will benefit from this partnership by having access to the latest research trials and treatments closer to home and the ability to receive comprehensive cancer care through a combined network of local physicians and neighborhood locations. LSUHSC and Ochsner patients will have access to cancer services at both organizations.
Louisiana residents will now have a truly diverse ‘team’ of cancer care experts,
clinical experts and research leaders, dedicated to providing compassionate and
comprehensive cancer care within the local community,” said Dr. John Cole, M.D.,
Head of Hematology/Oncology at
“The joint program will allow scientists and clinicians to jointly study the most frequent cancers in our region and design new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat them,” notes Dr. Augusto Ochoa, Director of the LSUHSC Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center.
“This partnership was developed from mutual commitment to provide the best care for our communities. Ochsner and LSUHSC have a long tradition of partnership through shared medical education and research trials; however, this latest collaboration will have a more direct impact on residents lives,” explains Warner Thomas, President and Chief Operating Officer of Ochsner Health System.
