Saint Francis Medical Center is proud to announce that urologist Vincenzo Galati, DO, FACS, has been certified by MD Anderson Cancer Network™ through the Medical Center.
MD Anderson Cancer Center is the top cancer hospital according to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospital” survey. Experts there have developed disease-specific guidelines for cancer treatment, cancer prevention, early detection and follow-up care that allow MD Anderson-certified physicians to bring new hope and knowledge to local cancer patients. Galati joins 26 other MD Anderson-certified physicians fighting cancer at the Medical Center’s Cancer Institute.
“This prestigious MD Anderson certification confirms Dr. Galati’s commitment to conquering cancer in Cape Girardeau and beyond,” says Steven C. Bjelich, FACHE-D, President and Chief Executive Officer at Saint Francis. “Thanks to the Medical Center’s exclusive local affiliation with MD Anderson, all 27 of our certified physicians are working around the clock to establish the Cancer Institute as the local leader in cancer care.”
This affiliation is helping to raise the standard of cancer care in the local community by allowing Saint Francis to combine the best cancer care provided locally with the expertise of MD Anderson Cancer Center.
