Welcome to Dr. Edgardo Rivera, Medical Director of the Banner
MD Anderson Cancer Center
By Dr. Chris Price, Chief of Staff
I would personally like to extend my welcome to Dr. Edgardo Rivera, Medical Director for the Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center. Although the announcement of his appointment to this position came out in November, his first official day on the job was earlier this month. Dr. Rivera brings expertise as an oncologist combined with a true passion for excellent patient care to this position. Having him join the medical staff and leadership team for the cancer center is a critical milestone in the ongoing development of the center.
There will be more leadership positions for the cancer center announced in the coming months. The most recent being the appointment of Vicki Koceja to Clinical Administrative Director that you can read more about in this issue of Gateway.doc. As more individuals are hired for the Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center and join our team, please take the opportunity to get to know them. We will all be working together on this campus to meet the end goal of providing the community with the best care.
The Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center is on schedule for completion in September. While that might seem like a long time away, it is only 8 short months from now. Stay tuned for more updates as they come available.
