American Oncology Network Expands to Hawaii, Welcomes New Practice to Network

Hawaii Cancer Care partners with American Oncology Network to continue delivering quality cancer care to the community.

HONOLULU, April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Oncology Network (AON) (Nasdaq: AONC), one of the nation’s fastest-growing community oncology networks, is pleased to announce its expansion into Hawaii and welcomes Hawaii Cancer Care to the network.

“Our goal at AON is to partner with independent community oncology practices to further close the cancer care gap,” said Todd Schonherz, AON’s chief executive officer. “It is practices like Hawaii Cancer Care that are vital to the care delivery process ensuring patients have access to the care they need to treat their cancers and blood disorders. Independent medical practices that operate within communities, both large and small, offer significant benefits to patients, such as, limiting the distance traveled for care and often providing the same high-quality care and services at a more affordable price, which are critical components to the overall health journey. I’d like to welcome Hawaii Cancer Care and the care team to AON and am eager to witness the positive impacts they will continue to have in the community.” 

Hawaii Cancer Care currently has clinics in Aiea and Honolulu to ensure cancer care is accessible to residents in the community. The facilities are equipped to deliver various cancer treatment modalities, including chemotherapy and immunotherapy as well as hormonal, targeted, biologic and certain cellular therapies.

The practice encompasses a team of highly trained Board-certified medical oncologists and hematologists: Jon S. Fukumoto, MD; Melvin P. Palalay, MD; David J. Tamura, MD; and Arnold K. Yee, MD, MPH. Additionally, the physician group is supported by a team of highly skilled and compassionate advanced practitioners to further provide patient care: Judy Ko, RN, MSN, APRN; Bryce Montalbo, DNP-FNP; and Ashley Mae Springer, RN, MSN, AGPCNP-BC.

“We are happy to be partnering with American Oncology Network,” said the physicians at Hawaii Cancer Care. “We are passionate about serving our local community with the highest level of care we can in an environment that is comfortable and supportive. Our approach to patient care revolves around creating treatment plans that are individualized and precision based. In our efforts to elevate our services, partnering with AON gives us the additional resources and support so that we can continue our patient-first care approach that we require from our care teams.”

“We are eager to welcome Hawaii Cancer Care to AON,” said Stephen “Fred” Divers, MD, AON’s chief medical officer. “Hawaii is the newest state in our network, and we are honored to have the opportunity to bring our services, resources and support the patients of Hawaii Cancer Care. The practice already has a comprehensive menu of cancer care services that are valuable to patients at every stage in their diagnosis. While the practice has a solid foundation of services, we look forward to supporting the physicians and care team as they continue their mission to deliver high-quality patient care.”
