Orlando Health Offering Cancer Services at Health Central
Cancer patients living in west Orange County now have more options when it comes to receiving cancer care.
Orlando Health is now offering full-time radiation oncology and medical oncology services at Health Central Hospital located in Ocoee. Services include radiation treatments, infusion treatments and chemotherapy.
The new cancer treatment facility, a 16,500 square foot building located across the street from Health Central, also houses a Varian TrueBeam™ medical linear accelerator machine. This is one of only two locations in Central Florida offering this advanced radiation technology which treats breast, lung and prostate cancer patients.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring cancer services right to west Orange County,” said Greg Ohe, President, Health Central Hospital. “We continue to see the number of men and women diagnosed with cancer climbing and by having these services at Health Central, cancer patients can now receive the best care available right in their own neighborhoods.”
The opening of the cancer facility comes following Orlando Health’s acquisition of Health Central this past April. The new cancer facility initially brought 20 new jobs to the area with more jobs expected as its cancer services expand.
