Eden Updates Radiation Oncology Center

Posted on Jan 12, 2015

patient receiving radiation therapyEden Medical Center’s renovated Radiation Oncology Center  has been providing radiation oncology services to the community for more than 30 years.

Radiation oncology treatment, also known as radiation therapy, radiotherapy or therapeutic radiology, is the use of precisely delivered radiation to treat malignant (cancerous) and benign (non-cancerous) disease.

The Radiation Oncology Center offers a full spectrum of services, providing customized treatment for each and every patient.

Located in a newly renovated facility, our Center offers a comfortable, patient-centered environment.

By using advanced technology to “map” tumors, our radiation oncologists can design treatments with millimeter accuracy, ensuring that tumors get the most effective dose and healthy tissues and organs are spared. Through the Sutter Health network of services, you have access to a wide range of treatments and procedures.

Services will include: treatment planning, conformal therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, image guided radiation therapy, brachytherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic ablative body radiation.

To learn more about Eden Medical Center’s Radiation Oncology Center, or any of our cancer care services, please call (510) 581-0556 or visit edenmedicalcenter.org/services/cancer.html.

Girl Scouts honor the first baby girl born at Eden Medical Center during Girl Scout Week.For the past nine years, a local Girl Scouts troop has celebrated Girl Scout Birthday Week (March 9-15) by honoring the first baby girl born at Eden Medical Center during that week.

This year, that honor went to baby Isabel Nguyen, who was born at Eden on March 9 at 8:31 a.m. Baby Isabel weighed in at 6 pounds, 6 ounces and is 19-1/2 inches long.

Rebekah Fesmire and Kaitlin Suchanek, both Girl Scouts from Senior Girl Scout Troop 30711, came to Eden to personally deliver a gift basket of baby blankets, clothes, toys, diapers, and bath supplies, books, and more, to the family. Proud parents Micki and Phuc Nguyen and big sister Olivia were grateful for the gifts.

Honoring the first baby girl born during Girl Scout Week is a service project sponsored by Girl Scouts of the Chabot Service Unit and is a project exclusive to Eden Medical Center, thanks to Laura Suchanek, R.N. (Birth Center), who has spearheaded this wonderful event every year.

The Girl Scouts was founded on March 12, 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low and is committed to helping girls grow strong in developing character, leadership skills, social skills, individual strength all the while performing service to the community.
