The Advanced Center for Cancer Care in Crown Pointis located on the Franciscan Alliance/St. Anthony Hospital campus in the former Hematology Oncology Partners in Excellence (HOPE) offices. In 2011 respected oncologist Ray Drasga, MD, founder of HOPE, announced his retirement after years of establishing himself as one of the most respected providers of comprehensive cancer care in the area. To honor this commitment to patients in Crown Point and surrounding communities, Dr. Drasga trusted only one cancer treatment center to take over: Michiana Hematology Oncology.
As of fall 2011, HOPE has become the Advanced Center for Cancer Care in Crown Point. While the name has changed, the level of compassion and cutting edge cancer care still remains the most advanced in the region.
