Tacoma, Washington – February 24, 2021 – Today, we are pleased to announce the exciting news that Northwest Medical Specialties, PLLC (NWMS) and Osborn Cancer Care will join together as a single entity. This decision was based on the desire from both organizations to extend and preserve their mission of providing the highest quality cancer care by partnering with like-minded providers who are dedicated to serving cancer patients in their own communities.
“As one of the national leaders in value-based care, our practice has been hoping for many years to expand its reach beyond the South Puget Sound area and we will do this by partnering with Dr. Osborn in Olympia and Chehalis, thus impacting many more people benefiting from the highest quality and cost effective care they need close to their home with access to cutting edge research and programs available at NWMS.” said Dr. Sibel Blau, MD, Medical Director at Northwest Medical Specialties, PLLC.
“Through this merger, our like-minded practices will be able to streamline programs and determine how we can together offer even more to those impacted by cancer in a larger geographical area.” Said Dustan Osborn, MD, PhD at Osborn Cancer Care.
Together, NWMS and OCC will join as Northwest Medical Specialties, PLLC and will serve thousands of cancer patients throughout Western Washington at 7 locations including Gig Harbor, Puyallup, Tacoma, Bonney Lake, Federal Way, Olympia and Chehalis. We are grateful for this opportunity to unite a combined 60 years of cancer care experience under a single entity in an effort to expand cancer services to more patients. We are dedicated to bringing the most cost effective, efficient and innovative cancer care to our communities and will strive to meet the diverse needs of all individuals impacted by cancer.
