The Cancer Center at St.Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital invites the public to tour the expanded and remodeled Chemotherapy and Infusion Center and the new technology in Radiation Oncology. A public open house will be Wednesday, April 17, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Cancer Center, 2020 Meridian Street.
The open house will feature a unique and inspiring art exhibit, called “Lilly Oncology on Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey.”
The Radiation Oncology Center recently installed a new Trilogy linear accelerator from Varian Medical Systems. It delivers advanced forms of radiotherapy, including accurate stereotactic treatment for very small lesions. Often called radiosurgery, stereotactic treatment involves delivering high doses of external beam radiation to small areas for short periods of time.
Radiation Oncologist Dr. Alexander Yeh explained, “Stereotactic approaches are generally most appropriate for very small lesions and early metastases. Better diagnostic tools are making it possible for us to see tumors much earlier, when they’re still very small, so stereotactic radiotherapies are likely to play a much larger role in the future of cancer care.” Dr. Yeh has extensive experience with stereotactic treatment and was one of the first radiation oncologists to bring radiosurgery to Indiana.
The Outpatient Chemotherapy and Infusion Center has expanded into adjacent space on the second floor of the Erskine Medical Office Building. The enlarged space allows for 13 treatment bays. Each bay features a new treatment chair with its own private television screen and space for a family member or friend to be seated. In addition, for patients who need to be isolated or who have more complicated treatments, there are now five private treatment rooms.
“We have designed the center to better meet the medical and personal needs of our patients,” said Sandy Crawley, director of the Cancer Center and Clinical Research.
The Outpatient Chemotherapy and Infusion Center plans to expand its hours of operation into the evening and weekends. “Some treatments and infusions can take several hours to complete. Longer hours of operation will give patients more flexibility when selecting a start time for their procedures,” Crawley said.
