The US Oncology Network Focuses on Your Patients

The US Oncology Network is one of the largest community-based networks of doctors and practices in the country focused on cancer treatment and research. Each year, the nearly 1,000 physicians in The Network touch the lives of more than 750,000 cancer patients in more than 370 locations and over 70 integrated cancer centers throughout the United States.
A pioneering, integrated approach to cancer care means that each patient’s cancer care team — medical oncologist, radiation oncologist and surgeon — collaborates to ensure delivery of the highest-quality and most advanced care to patients in the communities where they live.

Patients respond best to treatment when they receive integrated care close to home, relying on the support of family and friends and keeping their daily routines throughout the treatment process.

World-Class Resources — Innovative Treatment

To ensure that your patients receive the most advanced care possible, we are driving innovation across all phases of the cancer care research and delivery system. When a physician in your community is part of The US Oncology Network, he or she has access to the expertise and resources typically only found in major academic medical centers, including:

Proven Treatment Plans
Level I Pathways are our evidence-based treatment guidelines developed by oncologists in The Network to help direct treatment decisions toward precise, clinically proven options. These proven treatment guidelines help affiliated physicians provide the most effective care for specific diseases.

Shared Expertise

Advanced Hematology Services
For patients with blood disorders, including blood cancers, practices in The Network provide comprehensive hematology services, including diagnosis, treatment and access to hematology-focused clinical trials.

Community-Based Care
When we say we are committed to community-based care, we mean it. With more than 370 locations across the country, including 70 integrated cancer centers, patients don’t have to travel far from home to get the high-quality care they need to fight their cancer. They can stay near their family and friends — and you — and keep to their daily routines as much as possible.
