As a certified member of MD Anderson Cancer Network, HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital is utilizing MD Anderson Cancer Center’s renowned clinical standards and expertise to elevate the quality of patient care with one clear, shared mission — to end cancer.
MD Anderson Cancer Network is a program of MD Anderson Cancer Center. Located in Houston and founded in 1941, it is one of the world’s largest and most respected centers devoted exclusively to cancer care, research, education, and prevention. The institution is one of the nation's original three comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Act of 1971. MD Anderson Cancer Center is recognized as one of the nation’s best cancer hospitals, ranking as one of the top two cancer centers since the U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” survey began 25 years ago. The network was created to extend access to MD Anderson’s sub specialized expertise, patient treatment protocols, research and multidisciplinary care and advance the mission to end cancer through collaborations.
Being an MD Anderson Cancer Network certified member means HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital has met the rigorous standards, set by MD Anderson Cancer Center, that involve treating patients according to evidence-based medicine and eventually provide opportunities for patients to participate in MD Anderson clinical trials, in addition to those clinical trials offered locally. MD Anderson Cancer Network only selects hospitals that are successful in meeting their rigorous qualification criteria.
With the authority and expertise to treat patients using evidence-based medicine, we help patients fight and cure some of the most common forms of cancer including lung cancer, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, and other types. This includes the different stages of this unique disease in all form that it manifests. Whether you're in the beginning stages, advanced stages, or in metastic conditions, we have various treatment options available to help. This can consist of chemotherapy, surgery, or other alternative remedies like stem cell treatment for cancer, or Vitamin C cancer treatment.
