Fort Myers, FL – May 28, 2019… American Oncology Network, LLC (AON) is pleased to announce that Hope Cancer Care of Nevada (HCCN), a leading community oncology/hematology practice in Las Vegas, Nevada will be joining AON, effective July 1, 2019. AON is an alliance of physicians and veteran healthcare leaders uniting to ensure the long-term success of community oncology.
HCCN has two locations, including an office located at 6827 W. Tropicana Avenue, Las Vegas, and a second office at 2340 E. Calvada Boulevard, Suite 7, Pahrump, Nevada, which is approximately 65 miles west of Las Vegas. Through the affiliation with AON, the practice will increase their current service offerings to their patients, adding enhanced technology, an expanded oral oncolytic outpatient pharmacy, and augmented care management services, among others.
AON CEO, Bradley Prechtl, MBA, said, “We are excited to welcome Dr. Raja Mehdi, Dr. Laxmi Iyer, and the staff of HCCN into the American Oncology Network, LLC. Through alliances such as this, AON can offer a broad range of additional services to affiliated practices that enable community oncologists to provide high quality, value-based cancer care to their patients in a convenient setting, close to where they live.”
AON Board Member and Chairman, Dr. Steve Orman, added, “Recent studies have demonstrated not only that cancer patients prefer to receive treatment in a community-based setting, but also that treatment costs are significantly lower than in a hospital-based environment. AON is also able to bring a broad range of clinical trials to its affiliated practices, so they can offer patients the most promising new drugs, even before they receive FDA approval.”
“We are in a challenging and constantly changing healthcare environment,” Dr. Raja Mehdi, of Hope Cancer Care of Nevada, explained. “Partnering with American Oncology Network will provide several improved services for our patients and the communities we serve, including participation in the AON Care Management program, which focuses on providing high-quality cancer therapy while reducing costs to deliver true value-based care.”
With a determination to help everyone receive access to exceptional cancer care, AON was founded by well-respected leaders in community oncology with decades of experience helping oncology practices to thrive by providing proven solutions.
