ThedaCare has signed an agreement with the intent to acquire the assets of the physician group Fox Valley Hematology & Oncology, S.C. by June 4.
“ThedaCare is committed to our mission of improving the health of the communities we serve,” ThedaCare President and CEO Imran Andrabi said in a press release. “By combining the world-class talent of ThedaCare and FVHO, patients and their families can be confident in knowing they have access to highly specialized cancer care experts and advanced technology along their journey of care, right here in the communities we serve.”
The agreement includes the acquisition of assets and the employment of providers and staff.
“Fox Valley Hematology & Oncology has a longstanding relationship with ThedaCare hospitals,” Timothy Goggins, MD, physician and an owner at FVHO, said in the release. “We have been caring for patients in Northeast Wisconsin since 1990, respecting each patient as a person with unique issues, hopes and needs. This acquisition allows us to continue to provide advanced care close to where many of our patients call home, keeping what’s best for our patient at the center of each treatment plan.”
Leaders say bringing the two organizations together will enhance access to care for the patients in the communities where they live, especially in the rural areas where ThedaCare will be offering cancer care multiple days per week.
