Fort Myers, Fla., February 27, 2024 – Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, LLC (FCS) has opened a new state-of-the-art facility at 2824 Enterprise Road, Orange City, FL 32763-8428 to provide comprehensive treatments and a variety of services to adults with cancer, blood disorders and other diseases. The new location, one of five FCS sites of service in Volusia County, replaces the former FCS clinic on Image Way.

In a ribbon-cutting event on Thursday, February 22, 2024, FCS Chief Information & Administrative Officer Ken Sturtz opened the ceremony, noting that this month marks the 40-year anniversary of the founding of the statewide practice.

“For 40 years, we have been redefining healthcare excellence,” said FCS Chief Executive Officer Nathan H. Walcker. “The unveiling of our newest office is a clear-cut example of how our strategic investments, paired with the compassion of our physicians and their teams, deliver unparalleled oncology care services and drive superior patient outcomes.”

Shemin Gupta, MD, FCS board-certified medical oncologist and hematologist who provides care to patients in Orange County, remarked, “My colleagues and I share a passion and dedication to one singular goal – to provide our patients with the most advanced treatments personalized for their unique needs.”

Dr. Gupta is one of four board-certified medical oncologists and hematologists who provide care at the FCS Orange City clinic, including Ernesto Bustinza-Linares, MD, Victor Melgen, MD and Lynn Van Ummersen, MD. The team of cancer experts also includes advanced practice providers, board-certified oncology nutritionists and support staff.

Joining FCS physicians and leaders for the ribbon-cutting celebration were Orange City Mayor Gary Blair, several Orange City council members, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Central Florida President Lourdes Leon, and several of its directors.

“We are so proud of our rich history of providing world-class cancer care across Florida and driving the dramatic transformation of oncology care worldwide through our extensive clinical research program,” said FCS President & Managing Physician Lucio N. Gordan, MD. “Our patients are fortunate in that they have access to advanced treatment and state-of-the-art technology within each of our clinic locations.”

The newly constructed, single-story building was designed to enhance patient comfort, convenience, and provider efficiencies. The new Orange City clinic has more than 16,000 square feet of space and includes 12 private exam rooms and 35 infusion therapy chairs. Patients have in-house access to specialty pharmacy and hematopathology laboratory services, care coordination and clinical trial opportunities.
