Saratoga Hospital’s Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center was designed to meet the needs of today’s cancer and tumor patients and their loved ones.
The center provides technologically advanced radiation oncology treatments with a commitment to excellence. Radiation therapy uses high-energy particles or waves to treat cancer and other diseases. Depending on a patient’s condition, the goal of radiation therapy may be to shrink or destroy a tumor or to slow its growth.
Patients benefit from the same advanced technology available elsewhere in the region, including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), a dual energy linear accelerator with multi-leaf collimation, a high-speed multi-slice CT simulator, and an image-guided tumor localization system. These advanced technologies deliver high doses of radiation with as little damage as possible to surrounding tissues.
Many of the amenities – from the soothing artwork in the ceilings of treatment rooms to the Saratoga Hospital Guild Circle of Care Resource Center – are the result of input from cancer survivors, their loved ones, and other supporters.
Northeastern Radiation Oncology, PLLC, offers patients an outstanding team of board-certified physicians providing services at the Center.
