Clinical Affiliations/Certifications

The Manderson Cancer Center offers enhanced access to research-based institutions through affiliations, registries and certifications.

MD Anderson Cancer Center NetworkTM Certified Member

The Lewis and Faye Manderson Cancer Center is one of only 15 certified members of the MD Anderson Cancer Center NetworkTM Certified Member, a program of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. This certification involves annual safety visits, Radiation and Medical Oncology Peer Review and weekly teleconferences with surgeons and oncologists to discuss disease specific cases. In the event the physician needs to make a referral to MD Anderson, our staff works with the intake team at MD Anderson to make this as seamless as possible for the patient. We are also an Affiliate Member of NRG Oncology as A Network Site. For more information, email Lisa Taylor at lisa.taylor@dchsystem.com.
