President of UPMC Hamot, David Gibbons, has released his statement on Hamot separation from the RCC:
important for cancer patients and the Erie region to know is that UPMC Hamot is unquestionably committed to continuing its mission to provide patients with the highest level of cancer care so they can face their diagnosis with confidence.
What this transition will mean for us is that UPMC Hamot will become a fully integrated partner of UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and all that this global cancer network will bring here. Just like Hamot partnership with Magee Womens and the collaboration with the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute, the partnership with the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center is destined for success.
What patients should know is that UPMC Hillman Cancer Center is the only nationally ranked cancer program in western Pennsylvania, and the only one designated by the National Cancer Institute as a Comprehensive Cancer Center one of only 49 in the country. This means high quality and strength but most importantly, it means proven cancer research in the areas of immunotherapy, cancer virology, and genomics that will change the way cancer is detected and treated, and may even prevent cancers from happening in the first place.
UPMC Hamot will join an impressive network of more than 2,000 physicians, researchers, and staff at the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center who treat more than 110,000 individuals each year.
