Regional Cancer Center

About This Location

Cancer patients now have skilled radiation therapy available in the Northern Neck. Mary Washington Healthcare is bringing experienced and compassionate care to the region with the opening of the Regional Cancer Center at Montross. Patients will have access to the most modern therapies, and some treatment sessions can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. Best of all, effective high-quality care will be close to home.

Capabilities
The facility will offer leading-edge technology and clinical expertise, like the Regional Cancer Center locations in Fredericksburg and Stafford County. It will be equipped with a Varian 2100 iX linear accelerator. This device has on-board imaging (OBI) and performs cone beam CT (CBCT) using a 120 multileaf collimator. Treatments include external beam radiation therapy with CT imaging using 3-D Conformal, IMRT, IGRT, and electron therapy.

Staffing
The MWHC Regional Cancer Center at Montross will be staffed by a full on-site radiation care team, including a radiation oncologist, radiation therapist, physicist, and nurse. All members of the Montross care team will be board-certified within their specialties. Additional support staff will be available as needed, including Cancer Navigators and a nutrition counselor.
