Texas Health, Cancer Support Community Expanding Access to Services|

I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
Cancer affects more people than just the person diagnosed with the disease. It also affects their family and friends. The Texas Health Resources philosophy of treating the whole individual — body, mind and spirit — recognizes the emotional, spiritual, family and social impact of illness.
To enhance support for patients with cancer, Texas Health has formed an alliance with Cancer Support Community North Texas. We’re collaborating to provide expanded social and emotional support services for patients and families who are dealing with cancer.
A generous gift from the Cambridge Mindful Living Foundation is leading fund-raising efforts on behalf of cancer patients and their families.
This alliance will create one of the most comprehensive cancer care networks in North Texas. Initial plans for expanded services include facilities on the campuses of Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Alliance, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano.
Our goal is to couple advanced medical treatment with compassionate, respectful care for the whole patient and for those who love and support the patient.
Texas Health and Cancer Support Community share similar values that focus on every patient as a unique individual. We deeply appreciate the dedication that members of Cancer Support Community bring to this relationship. We are also extremely grateful for the generous financial commitment made by Cambridge.
For our faith-based health system — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
