Linear Accelerator

Thanks to a generous donation by the Swenson family, we offer the Swenson Family Linear Accelerator Suite. This state-of-the-art linear accelerator provides advanced cancer treatment through pointed radiation. Cancer cells can be destroyed more effectively and efficiently through high-energy x-rays applied directly to the patient's tumor. The precision and individualization of the linear accelerator means that the patient can receive higher doses of radiation directly to cancerous cells while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. Knowing that undergoing treatment is emotionally challenging, an interior garden-like setting was created directly in the treatment room so that patients may find peace and solace.
