Harbor adds radiation to cancer care

Harbor Hospital Center has added on-site radiation therapy to its cancer center to serve inpatients and cancer outpatients who live in the community.

The Harbor Hospital Cancer Center has teamed up with the University of Maryland Medical Center's Radiation Oncology Associates, offering the service in the hospital's Gruehn Building.

Cancer center patients no longer will need to transfer to other hospitals in Baltimore for radiation therapy. The new service also will give cancer patients who live in Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn easier access to treatment, hospital officials said.

The addition completes the cancer center's inpatient and outpatient services. Services include a 30-bed inpatient unit staffed by full-time, board-certified medical oncologists and an oncology nursing staff. An outpatient program provides more than 7,000 chemotherapy and blood and platelet transfusion treatments a year.

Radiation therapy is one of the three major treatments of cancer.
