ABOUT US
Our Facility
At Southland Radiation Oncology Network (SRON) our radiation oncology treatment is provided in an outpatient facility that is emotionally welcoming and friendly, avoiding the impersonal feel of many hospital settings. Exquisite artwork adorns the walls, marble floors outline the building and a plush waiting area offers refreshments, books, puzzles and other amenities. Our knowledgeable and personable department staff strives on keeping the atmosphere comfortable to support you through your cancer journey.

Outside the radiation oncology department is our patient lounge, which offers a place to rest and reflect among vibrant artwork and serene fountains. Our lounge is intended to create an atmosphere of peace, safety and contemplation that balances the high-tech environment inside the building.
 

Our Team
Each team member plays an integral role in offering patients the most comprehensive, collaborative and compassionate care possible. The group meets weekly to review all patient charts and emotional needs, ensuring that clinical and supportive care are integrated.

Physicians: Radiation oncologists coordinate patient care, working with our medical staff to create individualized treatment plans and overseeing the rest of the radiation therapy team. At SRON we strive for excellence; our highly regarded physicians are board certified with advanced subspecialty training.

Physicists/dosimetrists: Based on the treatment plan developed by the radiation oncologists, physicists and dosimetrists ensure that radiation beams are designed and calculated properly. The physicist conducts scheduled calibrations on our equipment used to deliver the radiation therapy.

Radiation therapists: Radiation therapists prepare the patients for treatment and operate the equipment that delivers radiation.

Medical Assistants: Medical assistants are primary points of contact for patients undergoing radiation oncology treatment. They provide an orientation to therapy, help patients manage side effects and ensure that patients’ emotional and supportive needs are fully addressed.

Administrative personnel: Patient service representatives greet patients as they enter the department, keep contact information current, schedule upcoming appointments and assist insurance issues.
