Cancer Center of Acadiana (CCA) at Abbeville General Hospital welcomes a new physician to its facility. Molly B. Thomas, M.D., a board-certified oncologist and hematologist, will begin at CCA on Thursday, July 31. She will also remain staffed at CCA at Lafayette General Medical Center.

Dr. Thomas is known for having genuine compassion and a thorough understanding of cancer conditions. She is an active member of the community.

When obtaining her Bachelor of Science degree from LSU in Baton Rouge, Dr. Thomas graduated magna cum laude. She earned her Doctorate of Medicine from LSU-Shreveport in 2005. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and in Hematology/Oncology through the American Board of Internal Medicine. She is a current member of the American Society of Hematology and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Before practicing in Acadiana, she previously worked at Christus Schumpert Cancer Treatment Center and Christus Highland Medical Center in Shreveport. She also completed her residency and fellowship at the LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport.

CCA at Abbeville General, located on the third floor of the hospital, offers the same clinical treatments as those in Lafayette and in renowned cancer centers in Houston and throughout the country. CCA brings an identity as a top cancer treatment facility in the area, which should provide comfort to both patients and their families.

The American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer (CoC) granted a three-year accreditation to CCA, with commendation. This accreditation is considered the hallmark of excellence and is awarded to comprehensive cancer programs that provide high quality, comprehensive and multidisciplinary patient-centered care.

When patients receive care at an accredited facility such as Cancer Center of Acadiana, they have access to onsite laboratory and radiological testing, prevention and early detection. Clinical trials, new treatments, genetic counseling and several patient-centered services are also available.
