Introduction to MD Anderson
MD Anderson is known throughout the world for high-quality cancer care, research, academic programs and prevention services. Since its establishment in 1941, MD Anderson has made major contributions to improve the outlook for cancer patients everywhere.
MD Anderson was one of the first three federally designated comprehensive cancer centers by the National Cancer Act of 1971. A survey of health professionals has routinely ranked MD Anderson as one of the two premier cancer centers in the nation for the past eight years. Over 55,000 persons annually seek care at MD Anderson. The team approach to cancer care, pioneered at MD Anderson, has been strengthened by consolidating specialty clinics into multi-disciplinary care centers that allow patients to receive more ambulatory care and treatment in a single location.
MD Anderson offers one of the largest bone marrow and stem cell transplantation programs, as well as clinical trials to improve existing therapies. Teams of clinical specialists collaborate with scientists on problems of common interest and test theories that shorten the application of better treatment methods. Translational research studies are responsible for the promising field of chemoprevention, which uses synthetic vitamins to reverse pre-malignant lesions and halt the recurrence of some cancers, and for innovative gene therapy strategies being evaluated for several forms ofcancer.
With faculty and staff working in more than 30 buildings in the greater Houston area and in central Texas, MD Anderson is the largest freestanding cancer center in the world. The physical plant covers more than 11 million square feet, featuring the latest equipment and facilities to support growing needs in outpatient and inpatient care, research, prevention and education. It includes inpatient hospital facilities with 571 beds.
Construction projects include the addition of 12 floors that can accommodate more than 300 new inpatient beds in Alkek Hospital on the North Campus; two new research buildings on the South Campus that will house the Center for Advanced Biomedical Imaging Research and Center for Targeted Therapy as part of the McCombs Institute; and MD Anderson's first facility on its Mid Campus, a 25-story building to support current office space and future growth needs.
In addition to its main campus in the Texas Medical Center and two research campuses in Bastrop County, Texas, MD Anderson has developed a number of local, national and international affiliations
