Nevada Cancer Institute to be Sold to UCSD

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Nevada Cancer Institute announced Friday plans to sell its out-patient facility, operations and some personal property to UC San Diego Health System.

Operations will continue as normal until the sale is finished. As part of the agreement, the non-profit corporation will have to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The sale will reduce the NCI's debt by more than $50 million.

Nevada Cancer Institute officials say patients will not see a significant change in their care.

"Over time, we will continue to be able to build based on the foundation that the UCSD system and the Moore's Cancer Center have - to be able to, over time, offer more clinical trials to people and again to be part of something that has again achieved enormous standards of excellence," said Nevada Cancer Institute co-founder Heather Murren. 

The sale is expected to be completed in 2012.
