Linear AcceleratorWe provide the latest radiation techniques and equipment with treatments delivered by an experienced team of specialists and therapists through our partnership with Radiation Oncology Associates, PA.

The treatment options available to patients include:

  • Linear accelerators (LINAC) for external beam radiation therapy;
  • Prostate seed brachytherapy;
  • Image guided radiation therapy;
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery;
  • Large bore CT simulator.

Using the latest radiation technology, the board-certified radiation oncologists on our medical staff, therapists, medical physicists and dosimetrists collaborate to design custom treatment plans for patients.

Our multi-disciplinary team includes physicians, oncology-certified nurses, rehabilitation professionals, pharmacists, care managers, dietitians, social workers, physician-led palliative care program, spiritual care team and many others. This highly-effective approach ensures all aspects of a patient’s care from diagnosis through treatment are coordinated and consistent.

Our oncology nurses are nationally certified by the Oncology Nursing Society. This means they have proven their knowledge of cancer care by passing a test demonstrating an in-depth knowledge of cancer care. Before they can take the test, nurses must have experience as cancer nurses. Additionally, they must have completed required educational programs.
