Plano, TX - Medical City Plano has been nationally recognized as the only approved National Pancreas Foundation (NPF) Center in North Texas by the National Pancreas Foundation.
NPF Centers are designated based on a facility's ability to provide a multidisciplinary approach to pancreatic cancer treatment. Hospitals much provide a ready team of expert physicians in specialties such as oncologists, gastroenterologists, pancreas surgeons and interventional radiologists. Facilities must also provide additional patient focused programs such as a pain management service, psychosocial support and more. The goal is to treat the "whole patient" with a focus on the best possible outcomes and an improved quality of life.
"It is our honor to provide the highest quality, compassionate care for cancer patients who turn to us for help," said Carlton Ulmer, Medical City Plano CEO. "As the first NPF Centers in North Texas and one of the only two in the state of Texas, this further distinguishes Medical City Plano as the destination of choice for healthcare excellence for pancreatic cancer patients."
