The Virginia Hospital Center Department of Radiation Oncology was dedicated and renamed as The Hitt Family Center for Radiation Oncology in honor of longtime supporters Russell and Joan Hitt, for their generosity in helping to fund the Department’s expansion. The Hitt Family Center for Radiation Oncology features a new, state-of-the-art treatment suite with the TrueBeam™ Linear Accelerator, which provides advanced radiation treatments for lung, breast, prostate, head and neck, and other types of cancer with unprecedented speed and accuracy. Patients experience fewer side effects, more precise treatments sparing surrounding healthy tissue, and a more rapid return to health.
The Hitt Family Center for Radiation Oncology is nationally accredited to the highest standards of practice by the American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), the American Board of Radiology (ABR), and the American College of Radiology (ACR), and is also designated a Center of Excellence for breast cancer radiotherapy.
