Sylvester/UMHC Radiation Oncology Expands Services to New Location
Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center/University of Miami Hospital and Clinics has expanded its radiation oncology services. The new UMHC/Sylvester West satellite office, located in the University of Miami Hospital West Building, provides enhanced patient access and the same quality and continuity of care provided at all Sylvester facilities.
Staffed by Sylvester’s premier physicians, patients receive the most advanced radiation oncology treatment options delivered with the compassion and expertise for which the world-class cancer center is known. The facility provides radiation therapy to outpatients referred to Sylvester, as well as patients admitted to University of Miami Hospital, who can now begin or continue radiation therapy with Sylvester’s multidisciplinary team of dedicated healthcare professionals while hospitalized.
The radiation oncology suite, located at 1400 N.W. 12th Avenue, is undergoing renovations to modernize the facility, which is already furnished with state-of-the-art equipment and includes free parking with direct access to the clinic. Renovations are expected to be complete at the end of the year.
Patients who use radiation oncology services also will have access to UHealth’s electronic medical record system, UChart, further streamlining their visits by facilitating multidisciplinary care throughout the health system and communication with clinical staff and physicians through the MyUHealthChart.com portal.
The UMHC/Sylvester West office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 305-689-5691.
