GenesisCare Chief Executive Officer, Dan Collins, is excited for GenesisCare to lead cancer care delivery in the U.S.: “Since day one, improving our patients’ clinical outcomes and their care experience has been our top priority,” Mr. Collins said.

“GenesisCare is delighted to partner alongside the leading physicians and specialist teams at 21st Century Oncology. Together, we can deliver a profound positive impact for cancer patients, not only across America, but around the world.”

The combined group of more than 5,000 doctors, specialists and team will reach over 400,000 patients across 440 locations internationally each year. This includes GenesisCare’s cardiac services in Australia.

“We have exciting long-term growth plans in the U.S. Our vision is to ensure as many cancer patients as possible receive the right outcome, at the right time close to home. Our goal is to make it easier for everyone,” Mr. Collins said.

GenesisCare has committed to installing 10 state-of-the-art linear accelerators in the first 100 days, which are critical to the delivery of highly targeted radiation therapy, at locations across Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and Rhode Island.

Commenting on completing this transaction during a global pandemic, Mr. Collins said that employee and patient safety has been critical to ensuring GenesisCare’s ability to treat patients during this crisis.

“Cancer doesn’t stop, and we haven’t either. We couldn’t be prouder of our fantastic teams who have adapted to new ways of working, including even greater safety measures, use of digitally enabled care, and other innovative solutions to keep our teams and patients safe and our centers open when it matters most,” he said.

This acquisition comes on the heels of the announcement on Friday that Landmark Cancer Center had joined 21st Century Oncology.
