Hematology Oncology Associates (HOA) has partnered with Asante to provide our patients with additional services, such as clinical trials, nurse navigators, and better access for covering care for those who are underinsured or uninsured. This new partnership went into effect January 1, 2022. HOA staff become Asante employees but HOA providers will remain independent. Your HOA doctor will continue care for you in the Asante hematology oncology clinics inside the new Mary and Dick Heimann Cancer Center at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center in Medford, and the newly expanded Helen K. Spears Cancer Center at Asante Three Rivers Medical Center in Grants Pass.
You and your caregivers will receive many benefits from HOA and Asante joining together in your cancer care, including easy coordination among your primary care physician and cancer specialists. Your oncology teams will have greater access to other hospital specialists and can communicate your critical information faster. A treatment plan is created especially for you by a multidisciplinary team of specialists who meet regularly to review newly diagnosed cases. You will also have greater access to nurse navigators, social workers, dietitians, financial counselors, and genetic counseling. BothAsante and HOA contract with the same insurance plans.
We hope you will take advantage of the availability of additional resources and increased services offered throughout your cancer care journey with HOA and Asante. Please visit the Hematology Oncology Associates website and the Asante Cancer Care page for more information about our partnership.
