Officials from Madison Memorial Hospital today announced a new affiliation with Salt Lake City-based Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah that will extend the resources of a premier cancer center to Madison County and the surrounding communities. This opportunity offers clinical best practices, research advantage, and educational resources. It also provides the best possible access to cancer care for our community, and positions Madison Memorial for greater success in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare environment.
This agreement provides life-changing benefits to patients as Madison Memorial will have access to the resources and clinical expertise of a top-ranked, academic, medical center. Huntsman Cancer Institute will provide staff development and business efficiency with educational opportunities and operating efficiencies connected with the large cancer center.
Both organizations emphasize the affiliation does not change ownership, local control, and governance, or restrict patient choice in providers. Instead, both organizations are dedicated to the best care for the cancer victim while remaining in their community.
