About Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center
Banner Health and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center opened Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center on Sept. 26, 2011 on the campus of Banner Gateway Medical Center in Gilbert, Ariz. The center joined Banner Health, one of the country's largest nonprofit health care systems, with MD Anderson, internationally renowned for its cancer treatment and research, to deliver unprecedented levels of cancer care in Arizona. Patients at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center receive care based on the same protocols and practice standards provided at MD Anderson and benefit from integration with MD Anderson specialists in Houston. Advanced technologies, treatment alternatives, support services, patient and family amenities, and evidence-based design elements provide an unmatched healing environment. Inside Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center are outpatient services including radiation treatment, diagnostic imaging and infusion therapy, cancer specific clinics and support services. Banner Gateway Medical Center provides inpatient care such as surgery, interventional radiology and stem cell transplantation.

T.W. Lewis Foundation Support
T.W. Lewis Foundation matched donations dollar for dollar in early 2017, generating $3.5 million to establish the T.W. Lewis Melanoma Center of Excellence at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center. The vision for the T.W. Lewis Melanoma Center of Excellence is to become the leading center for melanoma diagnosis, treatment and research in the Southwest as measured by the quantity and quality of its patient services and the respect of its peers. Since opening in November 2017, the Center has served 450 patients and expects that number to grow each year. The American Cancer Society estimates more than 1,800 new cases of Melanoma in Arizona this year. Since 90 percent of Melanoma cases are related to sun exposure, and Arizona is the sunniest U.S. state, there is no better place to continue waging war on this disease.
