Radiation oncologists – part of your comprehensive cancer team

At UCHealth Memorial Hospital Central in Colorado Springs, our radiation oncology department is nationally accredited, with an entire treatment team dedicated to providing you with the most compassionate, highest-quality radiation oncology care in the region.

Our program is university-affiliated; here, you’ll have access to the experts at University of Colorado Cancer Center in metro Denver, the only comprehensive cancer center in Colorado designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and one of just 45 in the country.

Why choose us

Specialists who really specialize

Unlike other hospitals that have general radiation oncologists, our radiation oncologists specialize in certain cancers. This means that your radiation oncologist has extensive experience in your particular kind of cancer – and more experience often leads to better outcomes.

Comprehensive cancer care

Your radiation oncologist will collaborate with all of your cancer doctors to provide up-to-date, coordinated, multidisciplinary care. They also participate in Memorial’s weekly multidisciplinary clinics and conferences for breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancers and central nervous system/spine tumors; as well as a weekly thoracic tumor conference.

University of Colorado affiliation

Memorial’s radiation oncologists are all full-time faculty members of the University of Colorado School of Medicine. We leverage this relationship to provide the highest possible level of care to our patients right here in Colorado Springs. This relationship also gives our patients access to national and University of Colorado clinical trials.

Expert radiation therapy, close to home

We have facilities at both Memorial Central and Memorial North. We are the only provider of radiation oncology services in northern Colorado Springs. Because of our close relationship with nationally-renowned specialists, we can deliver the most sophisticated radiation oncology treatment, even if yours is a very complicated case.

Compassion and support

Our radiation therapists and nurses are highly experienced and are consistently complimented by patients on their compassion and capabilities.

Our patients can also receive extensive support during their cancer treatment journey from Memorial’s nurse navigators, social workers, financial counselors, and many others.

Services and treatments

At Memorial Hospital Central, we treat virtually all types of cancer, including pediatric cancer, using a full range of radiation modalities and techniques, including:

  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with daily image guidance.
  • Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) for low-risk breast cancer.
