About University of Florida Health Cancer Center

Orlando Health has joined forces with University of Florida Health to become the UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando, switching from its previous affiliation with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

It should be a positive move, resulting in greater access to clinical trials and cutting-edge therapies, along with personalized patient care and enhanced team collaboration.

The center remains committed to providing the best cancer care available, and maintaining the highest standards of excellence in patient care, education and basic science. The goal is to become just the second NCI Designated Cancer Center in the Florida, joining the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa.

The UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando embraces a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, which plays a crucial role in the hospital’s reputation for the diagnosis and treatment of lung and esophageal cancers, as well as mesothelioma and other conditions affecting the chest. These diseases are effectively treated by the Rod Taylor Thoracic Care Center, the region’s only team specially trained in advanced thoracic cancer surgery.

The Thoracic Care Center includes Luis Herrera, M.D., a specialist in all thoracic surgeries with a particular expertise in multimodality treatments (chemotherapy/radiation/surgery). He and the full team — including board-certified surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, nurses, researchers and therapists provide patients with all necessary services, from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up.
