The Texas Oncology Uvalde office, which has been located within the Kate Marmion Regional Cancer Center since 2011, will close Nov. 30 after lease negotiations with Uvalde Memorial Hospital failed to produce a new contract.
According to Uvalde Memorial Hospital, despite a long-standing relationship described as serving both parties and the community well, it was inability to come to mutually agreeable terms during renewal negotiations that ended the tie. The hospital is currently seeking a medical oncologist.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Texas Oncology said staff will work directly with patients about their options for continued care.
“After more than 40 years of treating cancer patients in Uvalde, Texas Oncology will be closing our location here effective November 30 due to circumstances beyond our control,” said Dr. Thomas Fisher, San Antonio region medical director for Texas Oncology. “We are committed to working with our Uvalde area patients to transition their care to other Texas Oncology locations in Hondo, Kerrville, and San Antonio.”
