  USMD Brings World-Class, Patient-Centric Cancer Care to St. Louis

Partners with Gateway Cancer Center to Deliver State-of-the-Art, Physician-Led

Business Wire

IRVING, Texas -- July 30, 2013

USMD Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: USMD), a physician-led integrated healthcare
system, announced today its wholly owned subsidiary, USMD Cancer Treatment
Centers, has partnered with Metropolitan Urological Surgeons, Urological
Consultants and South County Urology to form Gateway Cancer Center in St.
Louis, Missouri.

Gateway Cancer Center is a state-of-the-art cancer center that offers both
radiation and urologic oncology services in the same facility. With urologists
and radiation oncologists working together at the same location, communication
is optimized to cultivate better patient care.

Gateway Cancer Center offers patients access to leading-edge technology
including cone beam computed tomography (Cone Beam CT), image guided radiation
therapy (IGRT) and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT—which treats
prostate and genitourinary cancers). The Center provides cutting-edge
equipment, combined with exceptional personalized care, which keeps the focus
on putting patients’ well-being first.

“The personal relationship that once characterized physician-patient
interactions has been displaced by well-meaning third parties,” says Bruce
Ellerin, MD, a radiation oncologist at Gateway Cancer Center. “Physicians
affiliated with the Center create personalized treatment plans that are
discussed in detail with the patient. This approach allows the patient and
their physician to decide together the next steps to be taken.”

Gateway Cancer Center’s patient-centric philosophy is well aligned with the
mission of USMD. The physician-led healthcare company helped develop and will
manage the radiation oncology facility.

“Providing patients with the best possible outcomes is the heart of our
mission at USMD,” says John House, MD, chairman and chief executive officer of
USMD Holdings. “We believe a healthy one-on-one relationship between doctor
and patient is absolutely vital to providing high-quality, personalized care
that patients deserve. The deeply personal commitment to patient care
displayed by the physicians and staff who are part of Gateway aligns with USMD
and its mission. We are proud to partner with our St. Louis colleagues to give
patients the compassionate quality care they deserve.”
