San Antonio Regional Hospital, City of Hope partner to expand cancer care services

Upland, Calif.-based San Antonio Regional Hospital and Duarte, Calif.-based research, cancer and diabetes treatment center City of Hope signed an affiliation agreement to expand cancer care services to residents in the community.

Under the agreement, City of Hope will develop a multidisciplinary outpatient cancer care center at the hospital's $160 million ambulatory center, which officials will begin construction on this year. City of Hope will also be responsible for naming the medical director of the oncology program and the medical director of the radiation oncology program for the cancer center.

"As a 109-year-old nonprofit hospital, our focus has always been to put patients' needs first and foremost," said Harris Koenig, president and CEO of San Antonio Regional Hospital. "Through this landmark affiliation, our patients will benefit greatly by being able to receive world class patient-centered cancer care close to their home and families. This is a significant positive milestone in the world of cancer care for the entire Inland Empire."
