USC’s Keck Buys OC-Based Practice for Cancer Network

Vita Reed Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Keck Medicine of USC, the University of Southern California’s medical enterprise, has acquired Orange Coast Oncology Hematology Medical Associates for an undisclosed price as part of a cancer-treatment network allowing local patients to avoid trips to Los Angeles for care.

The practice will now be known as USC Oncology/Hematology and have locations in Newport Beach and Irvine and at the USC Oncology/Hematology Infusion Center in Newport Beach.

Keck started laying the groundwork for the network late last year when it teamed with Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian to develop a treatment strategy that includes a comprehensive cancer program at Hoag Family Cancer Institute.
