Jeff Patton, MD
Jeff Patton, MD, has been named Chief Executive Officer of OneOncology, a national partnership of independent community oncologists. Dr. Patton has been Acting Chief Executive Officer and President of Physician Services since February. Dr. Patton will continue as Executive Chairman of the Board of Tennessee Oncology. OneOncology comprises five prominent practices throughout the United States, representing more than 400 providers caring for approximately 250,000 patients
annually at 160 sites of care.
“Dr Patton is a visionary leader with high integrity who understands community oncology and how practices can thrive in today’s changing environment better than anyone else in the country,” said David Chernow, Chairman of the Board of OneOncology. “Especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Patton’s leadership, vision, and track record of success are exactly the necessary ingredients to continue OneOncology’s momentum and help its partner practices grow.”
“I’m honored to lead such a dynamic partnership that helps community oncology practices grow and care for their patients,” Dr. Patton said. “We formed OneOncology in 2018 with the idea that with physician leadership, common technology platforms, and access to capital, practices could have both the necessary scale and local decision-making authority needed not only to survive, but to thrive in today’s marketplace. As practices grapple with COVID-19 and plan for caring for patients post peak, the ideas that brought us together are exactly what will propel our future growth.”
OneOncology partner practices deliver integrated oncology care services across the continuum of care from screening and diagnosis to clinical trials and therapies to survivorship or end-of-life care.
