Goal is to develop a premier cancer care delivery system

Space Coast Cancer Center is partnering with Moffitt Cancer Center to enhance cancer care by joining the newly launched Moffitt Oncology Network. The move aligns Space Coast’s accomplished cancer program, the largest and longest established hematology and oncology practice in Brevard County, with the network’s vision. Space Coast is recognized by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as a pioneer group practice focused on developing a new model of cancer care delivery.

Space Coast is the onlymember of the network in Brevard County. The Moffitt Oncology Network extends Moffitt’s knowledge and expertise to physicians and providers with the goal of offering the best personalized cancer care. Moffitt is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida.

Physicians from Space Coast and Moffitt will collaborate on patient care and novel clinical research. The relationship will include the use of Moffitt Clinical Pathways, quality management strategies and access to specialty case conferences. Space Coast will utilize the experts and best practices at Moffitt, including its multidisciplinary cancer care, peer review and quality assurance standards.

“Space Coast Cancer Center is very honored to be asked to be the exclusive member of the Moffitt Oncology Network in Brevard County,” said Richard M. Levine, M.D., president of Space Coast.  “The integration of Moffitt Clinical Pathways and case collaboration will be an immense benefit to cancer patients at Space Coast Cancer Center and in Brevard County.”

In 2001, Space Coast announced an affiliation with Moffitt to bring the most advanced cancer care to Brevard County. Collaborations in multiple cancer programs have continued. This new relationship in Moffitt’s network reinforces the goal of continually improving patient outcomes and research.

“Moffitt is focused on bringing its high-quality cancer care and cutting-edge research to the community, throughout Florida,” said Alan F. List, M.D., president and CEO of Moffitt. “Space Coast Cancer Center has been a leader of quality care in Florida and is committed to advancing oncology care through clinical research. We look forward to collaborating with Space Coast to better serve Brevard County and the east coast of Florida.”
