“Inspira has been providing high-quality radiation oncology services to patients in South Jersey for more than 35 years and we are pleased to be able to expand our program to a brand new facility on our Woodbury campus,” said Patrick Nolan, chief operating officer at Inspira Medical Center Woodbury. “We know how important it is for people in our community who are actively seeking cancer treatment to have advanced care right here in their own backyard. This new facility will provide them with state-of-the-art care that is close to home and in a unique and healing environment.”
Of note in the new center is a new system that adds an outside view and natural light into the room to counter the traditionally confined linear accelerator treatment rooms. The center will also be getting a new linear accelerator.
“This groundbreaking new system adds an outside view to the treatment room without affecting the integrity of the surrounding radiation shielding,” said Mario Sergi, director of medical imaging, radiation oncology and oncology data services at Inspira. “By combining state-of-the-art radiation therapy equipment with a unique healing environment, our experienced therapists and staff will be able to offer patients in the region with a new approach to cancer treatment.”
Inspira is working with Saphire Albarran Architecture in Pennington, and Veritas Medical Solutions in Harleysville, Pennsylvania, to develop the new center.
