Texas Oncology Hosts Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne (R-TX)


On Tuesday, May 2, Texas Oncology hosted Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne (R-TX) for a site visit at their Bedford practice. This cancer center is located in the heart of Bedford, enabling patients to receive high-quality care while staying close to their work, home, family, and vital support network. Led by Practice President Dr. Steven Paulson, along with Dr. Vasu Moparty, Practice Director Dr. Anna Schlatter, and Executive Director Stacie Harris, Congresswoman Van Duyne visited the infusion suite, the breast cancer center, and the radiation suite, meeting with staff along the way and learning about Texas Oncology’s model of care.

During the site visit, the discussion centered around site of service payment disparities, value-based care and Texas Oncology’s participation in the Oncology Care Model, the value of medically integrated dispensing, and work in precision medicine.

Congresswoman Van Duyne is a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, which has jurisdiction over Medicare payment. The Network and Texas Oncology look forward to working with Congresswoman Van Duyne on these important issues.  If you are interested in hosting a site visit, please contact
