Sheboygan – HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital will unveil its newly-remodeled radiation oncology suite at a community open house on Monday, Sept. 23.
Located within the hospital, the radiation oncology suite serves patients that require radiation therapy as part of their cancer treatment plans. Renovations include the addition of a new, state-of-the-art TrueBeam® linear accelerator that uses radiation to target cancer-affected areas more quickly, efficiently and comfortably. The new linear accelerator also expands the types of treatment options available to patients locally, advancing HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital’s lead in the fight against cancer.
In addition to the new technology, the radiation oncology suite also features new waiting and changing rooms to offer patients more comfort and privacy. These new spaces also enhance patient flow throughout the suite, reducing wait-times and increasing the ability to accommodate more patients. The suite has also been updated with new furniture, paint and artwork to promote a more calming, peaceful environment for patients and providers.
“Cancer is a journey no one asks to take,” said Sally Luehring, Executive Director of Cancer Services for HSHS – Eastern Wisconsin Division. “It is our hope the enhanced level of care and comfort that patients now have access to in our new facility will help to make that journey a little less difficult. The updates are complemented by a compassionate team of experts who truly treat their patients like family. We are proud to serve Sheboygan and its surrounding communities with high-quality cancer care that is close to home.”
The community is invited to an open house featuring tours and light refreshments to celebrate the updated radiation oncology suite.
