The Radiation Oncology Department of St. Joseph Hospital has been serving
the community since 1979. Together, a team of board-certified radiation
oncologists, certified oncology nurse clinicians, and support staff provide
an atmosphere that is highly conducive to the healing process, which includes
healing of the whole person--body, mind and spirit. In treating patients
and their families with compassion and dignity, our team focuses on alleviating
fear and anxiety through calm understanding and reassurance from initial
diagnosis through recovery.
Through their expert care, the Radiation Oncology Department applies external
beam radiation of varying degrees to the patient’s area of concern,
which could include cancerous areas of the prostate, breast, lung, colorectal,
and head and neck. They are recognized as a leader in providing therapeutic
services to all patients served and in bringing new technology and treatments
to local cancer patients.
