USMD Extends Physician-Led, Patient-Centric Healthcare To Alaska

Stocks in this article: USMD

USMD Holdings, Inc. ( NASDAQ: USMD) announced today it is extending high-quality, patient-centric medical care to the 49 th state by partnering with the Alaska Institute of Surgical & Medical Specialties in Anchorage.

This state-of-the-art facility brings together physicians from different areas of medicine to provide comprehensive care to the people of Alaska. While it offers the technology and resources of a large facility, it has an intensely personal focus on patients. Most notably, the institute includes the new Alaska Cancer Treatment Center that offers complete cancer care—including surgical urologic oncology, hematology and radiation oncology.

“It took vision, dedication and determination to take a spark of an idea and bring this leading-edge medical center to its opening day,” Alaska Governor Sean Parnell said in a congratulatory video address. “With state-of-the-art cancer treatment, surgery and other medical services all in one location, this is a significant step for Anchorage and all of Alaska.”

Located at 188 W. Northern Lights Boulevard in Anchorage, the integrated multi-specialty institute boasts an accomplished medical team that has the skills and expertise to treat any diagnosis. In addition, the facility is equipped with in-office operating rooms, treatment rooms and physician clinics.

“There is no need to leave Alaska for quality medical care,” says William R. Clarke, M.D., a principal with the institute. “At the Alaska Institute of Surgical & Medical Specialties, we have the best physicians and treatments available.”

USMD Cancer Treatment Centers, a wholly owned subsidiary of USMD Holdings, has been instrumental in developing and implementing the institute, and manages the radiation oncology facility that now makes the very latest TrueBeam radiation technology available to Alaska residents.

“We are proud to partner with our colleagues in Alaska to make exemplary cancer care more accessible,” said John House, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of USMD Holdings. “Restoring the vital physician-patient relationship has never been more important, and it is absolutely the heart of our mission at USMD. The Alaska Institute of Surgical & Medical Specialties has been built on empowering physicians and staff with experienced leadership, state-of-the-art technology and clinical tools so the people of Alaska can receive the compassionate expert care they deserve.”
