The West Clinic to partner with Methodist for cancer care

October 08, 2017

Lee Schwartzberg, M.D. FACP, The West Clinic's medical director, said, "My passion is all about translating research advances into positive benefits for our patients.  These highly-skilled fellows will further enhance our ability to revolutionize cancer care in our region by coordinating research and education across Methodist and UTHSC and training the next generation of specialists in this area."

"It is important to note that this is not a sale of The West Clinic," affirms Erich Mounce, CEO. "The West Clinic and its physicians will remain independent and autonomous. This is a novel partnership that will build upon the strengths of both Methodist Healthcare and The West Clinic to transform the way cancer care is provided in the Mid-South."  Mounce will maintain his position with The West Clinic and take responsibility for Methodist's cancer service line, reporting directly to Gary Shorb.
