UPMC Cancer Center at UPMC Horizon opened at the Shenango Valley campus Monday, Jan. 3. This expansion to UPMC Horizon adds radiation oncology to UPMC Horizon’s existing cancer program. The center brings the most advanced radiation oncology services available at UPMC Cancer Centers community sites to UPMC Horizon’s service area.
The center’s linear accelerator offers gated, image-guided intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with an on-board imager that delivers precise doses of radiation in a shorter amount of time than traditional IMRT. The new center also includes a patient waiting room with an educational kiosk, private sub-waiting rooms and dressing booths, four examination rooms, physician offices and staff lounges, and a conference room. The center is connected to the main hospital for convenient transport of inpatients.
Members of the community will be invited to see the new center during a public open house Tuesday,
Feb. 1. For more information about the UPMC Cancer Center at UPMC Horizon, call 724-983-7570.
