The Oncology Institute of Hope and Innovation (The Institute), the largest community oncology practice in California, announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Havencrest Healthcare Partners, M33 Growth and ROCA Partners to form a services entity, TOI Management (TOI), which provides business support services to The Institute. TOI and these strategic partners are joining forces to expand the delivery of The Institute’s industry-leading model of value-based oncology care across the country.

TOI also announced the appointment of Marshal Salomon as Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors. He brings over 20 years of executive leadership experience in multi-site healthcare organizations to TOI. Marshal most recently served as CEO of InterDent Service Corporation, one of the nation’s leading Dental Support Organizations, providing non-clinical support services to nearly 500 dentists across 200 affiliated dental offices, including the management of over 300,000 capitated lives in the state of Oregon.

Marshal was previously the Chief Operating Officer of Vantage Oncology, a provider of high quality, community-based cancer care through 50 treatment facilities in 13 states in conjunction with more than 200 physician partners and affiliates. Vantage’s mission was to address the growing need among cancer patients, hospitals and physicians for accessible and advanced cancer treatments. As COO, he oversaw Vantage’s nationwide network and was instrumental to the company’s culture, infrastructure development and prosperous growth. In 2016, McKesson Corp. acquired Vantage Oncology in a successful outcome for Vantage’s employees, physicians and investors.

The Institute provides community oncology care in over 30 offices across California, Arizona and Nevada. The Institute’s founder Richy Agajanian, M.D. will continue to provide clinical leadership across The Institute’s network, and each local office remains committed to providing high quality, outcomes-based, best-in-class cancer care for its patients. “We are excited to partner with Marshal and our strategic partners to continue supporting the development of the preeminent value-based, patient-centric oncology platform in the nation. With this growth capital investment in TOI, we have accelerated the support and strategic capabilities of our team, systems and offices so that The Institute can deliver the highest quality care and expand the scope of services we provide to our patients,” said Dr. Agajanian.
