The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center at The University of Toledo Medical Center and The Toledo Clinic Cancer Centers will collaborate to help expand services and oncology resources to residents of northwest Ohio in a new partnership effective Sept. 1.
“We are pleased to join teams with The Toledo Clinic,” said Rick Swaine, CEO of UTMC. “Dana Cancer Center has great staff and technology, and we look forward to expanding our capacity with these doctors.”
“This is a wonderful arrangement for the community,” said Rex Mowat, M.D., President of The Toledo Clinic Cancer Centers. “It allows for a number of talented physicians to collaborate, while providing additional resources offered by the Dana Cancer Center.”
The arrangement to collaborate between physicians, shared services, research and clinical trials is a three-year commitment.
The Dana Cancer Center, located on the UToledo Health Science Campus adjacent to UTMC, provides medical and radiation oncology services as well as technology and considerable support services for cancer patients.
The Toledo Clinic Cancer Centers are located in six locations throughout the area, including The Maurer Family Cancer Care Center in Bowling Green. The main campus is on Holland-Sylvania Road. Additionally, The Toledo Clinic is currently in the process of building a new state-of-the-art comprehensive cancer care campus in Maumee near St. Luke’s Hospital.
It is the expectation that the partners will be collaborating at all sites where cancer services are being provided.
“This will be a great opportunity for meaningful collaboration between The University of Toledo and The Toledo Clinic Cancer Centers,” said Henry Naddaf, M.D., president of The Toledo Clinic. “This collaboration will benefit both groups, and most importantly, improve and enhance patient care. This is exciting progress.”
“This is a very good start for the UTMC and Dana Cancer Center, but more critically, this partnership is essential for the patients of NW Ohio who are in need of comprehensive cancer treatment,” said Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur.
