UTMB and M.D. Anderson Announce First-Ever Collaboration for Center in League City
Posted In: Commercial | League City News Posted by Pam Moore on 08/24/2015


   
On August 20, 2015, The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB)  and The University of Texas M.D. Anderson (M.D. Anderson) announced their first-ever clinical collaborative agreement to build a joint outpatient cancer treatment center at the League City UTMB location. Recently, the UTMB’s Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes was renamed The UTMB Health-League City Campus.

The new center will be 135,000 square feet and is projected to open in 2018, and will become part of the M.D. Anderson’s Houston-area network, which includes four (4) clinical care centers. M.D. Anderson has a clinic located in the Bay Area is located at 18100 St. John Drive in Nassau Bay, on the campus of Methodist St. John Hospital. The expansion planned for the campus located at 2240 Interstate 45-South included a new hospital, emergency department, and a wider range of services for both inpatients and outpatients.

Since the landfall of Hurricane Ike,(2008), along the Galveston coastline, UTMB has been either moving or creating new health service locations further inland, primarily in League City. These facilities, along with others located in the Bay Area, are creating a collection of health services that greatly benefit local citizens. One of those many benefits would be: not having to travel to Houston’s downtown medical district for cancer treatments.

Excerpt from the M.D. Anderson News Release, dated 8/20/2015: “ “We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with a UT System sister institution,” said Donna K. Sollenberger, executive vice president and CEO of UTMB Health.“Together with the services that we provide, this collaboration further expands the excellent health care services that will be available at the League City Campus.”

“ “MD Anderson in Bay Area was our first center to provide both medical oncology and radiation services in the community, and it has played a vital role in advancing the quality of cancer care throughout this growing region,” said Thomas Burke, M.D., executive vice president, MD Anderson Cancer Network®. “With UTMB, we have a collaborator who shares our vision and mission for enhancing care and access to research, and we expect our momentum to grow and expand rapidly by working together.” ”
