Sarasota Memorial Radiation Oncology Center
5370 University Parkway, Sarasota FL 34243
The new Sarasota Memorial Radiation Oncology Center (opening Aug. 3, 2020) provides greater access to comprehensive cancer care and cutting-edge treatment for those in Sarasota and Manatee counties who are battling cancer.
Because cancer affects more than a patient’s physical health — it takes toll on mental and emotional health as well — the center was designed to deliver radiation therapy focused on the whole patient by integrating advanced radiotherapy technology with wellness features, such as a serenity garden and supportive services suite.
State-of-the-art Technology: The Radiation Oncology Center is equipped with Varian RapidArc TrueBeam linear accelerators, which are known as the gold standard in radiotherapy technology because they direct high-beam radiation with pinpoint precision. TrueBeam radiation therapy is faster and more accurate than other systems. For patients, that means a more comfortable experience and fewer side effects.
Make an Appointment
Call 941-917-7575 to make appointment. Services are available, starting Aug. 3, 2020.
Care Beyond Treatment: During active cancer treatment, patients often delay self-care because they lack the time or energy. But making time for self-care supports overall health and wellness. At the Radiation Oncology Center, patients have on-site access to dedicated counseling, patient navigation, financial counseling and other support services. There is also a serenity patio that features a peaceful garden, soothing waters and inspiring messages for those battling cancer.
Radiation Oncology Team
As part of Sarasota Memorial’s Cancer Institute, the Radiation Oncology Center is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of cancer specialists, medical experts and supportive care specialists, led by radiation oncologist Kunal Saigal, MD. Other onsite staff include dedicated registration specialists and a financial counselor.
