The two-story facility offers radiation therapy, medical oncology, chemotherapy and infusion services. Patients will have access to clinical trials; state-of-the-art linear accelerator treatments such as IGRT, IMRT, Rapid Arc, OBI and stereotactic services; and advanced medical imaging. The center also includes healing gardens and offers a number of holistic and support services, making it unlike any other facility in northern Illinois.
