Gettysburg Cancer Center announced it will join OneOncology, the national platform for independent oncology practices.
The move will allow the center, which has clinics in Gettysburg and Hanover, to stay independent and “have the capital, technology and expertise to grow into the premier cancer care provider in Pennsylvania,” according to a release.
Gettysburg Cancer Center provides patients comprehensive medical and radiation oncology care. It also has 17 patients enrolled in 14 open clinical trials.
The center will be able to add scale and resources to its clinical trial program by partnering with OneR, OneOncology’s clinical trial network.
Dr. Satish Shah, who leads Gettysburg Cancer Center, said in the release: “OneOncology gives us the best path forward to continue to bring our patients in Central Pennsylvania advanced cancer care and to grow our clinical trial program. Working with other leading oncology practices across the country who share our vision for delivering the highest quality care in the community setting is what sets OneOncology apart.”
The center has three medical oncologists, one radiation oncologist, and four full-time staff dedicated to clinical research. That number will grow as an additional medical oncologist, radiation oncologist and two advanced practice providers will start this fall, the release noted.
Including Gettysburg Cancer Center, there are 600-plus providers on the OneOncology platform caring for approximately 280,000 patients a year at 189 sites nationwide.
