WHAT IT DOES:

Florida Can­cer Spe­cial­ists is one of the largest pri­vately owned on­col­ogy/ hema­tol­ogy prac­tices in the U.S., pro­vid­ing can­cer care in community-based set­tings close to pa­tients’ homes. HOW IT GREW: On­col­ogy was very dif­fer­ent in 1984 when Dr. Bill Har­win founded Florida Can­cer Spe­cial­ists and Re­search In­sti­tute. There were not many op­tions for can­cer pa­tients out­side of surgery and prim­i­tive chemo­ther­apy. In the al­most 30 years since, Har­win’s com­pany and can­cer medicine as a whole have formed an al­most sym­bi­otic re­la­tion­ship, each one help­ing to spur the other for­ward. To­day, the com­pany boasts more than 120 physi­cians, 70 nurses and 60 clin­i­cal sites, and it sits at the cut­ting edge of new can­cer tech­nolo­gies such as molec­u­lar tar­get­ing and ad­vances in di­ag­nos­tics.

Thanks to its part­ner­ship with the Sarah Can­non Re­search In­sti­tute, Florida Can­cer Spe­cial­ists of­fers pa­tients ac­cess to more clin­i­cal tri­als than any other pri­vate on­col­ogy prac­tice in Florida.
