Moffitt Cancer Center Joins Forces with AdventHealth to Expand Cancer Care in the Tampa Bay Region
Date:5/23/2019

Moffitt Cancer Center and AdventHealth are working together to open an outpatient cancer center on the campus of AdventHealth Wesley Chapel in Pasco County.

“We strive to provide world-class cancer care close to where people live and work,” said Alan F. List, MD, president and chief executive officer of Moffitt Cancer Center. “Expanding Moffitt’s brand of oncology care, treatment and research in Pasco County helps us accomplish this goal. Moffitt also is responding to the growing incidence of cancer in Florida, as the state’s population continues to grow and age.”

The new Moffitt outpatient center at AdventHealth Wesley Chapel will provide medical and radiation oncology services and is designed to accommodate 20 exam rooms, 22 infusion stations and two linear accelerators. Cancer screenings and survivorship programs geared toward patients who are post-treatment and in remission will also be available.

“This is just the beginning of our partnership with Moffitt Cancer Center and our joint commitment to finding new ways to bring innovative cancer care to the Pasco community. Our partnership allows us to strengthen our network of care by expanding the type of health care services we can provide to our communities and gives cancer patients greater access to the country’s leading-edge research, clinical trials and cancer treatments at Moffitt,” said Mike Schultz, President & CEO of AdventHealth West Florida Division.

Moffitt’s outpatient center at AdventHealth Wesley Chapel is expected to open in the fall of 2020.
