Outpatient Oncology Center
Cancer Care in One Place
Imagine having all of the equipment, staff and systems an oncology patient needs in one central location. The comprehensive Rose Benté Lee Ostapenko Outpatient Oncology Center at Virginia Hospital Center now does just that. Consolidating diagnosis and outpatient treatment in one convenient hub, the Center brings together individual oncologists, specialized nursing expertise and the latest technologies to offer advanced capabilities such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), interventional radiology and brachytherapy. Outpatient infusion (chemotherapy), radiation oncology and support groups under the same roof.
The Center is located on the ground floor and has its own private entrance (what was previously the Emergency Department entrance for the original Hospital).
David Duhamel, MD, pulmonologist and head of the Hospital's esteemed Lung Cancer Center, is the Medical Director of the Outpatient Oncology Center. "We want each patient to feel like he or she is the most important person in the world," he says. "Our goal is to create an environment that is accessible, healing and rejuvenating."
Rose Benté Lee Ostapenko Outpatient Oncology Center is open to anyone, including patients sent by referral, individuals who self-refer, and those seeking a second opinion.
