Overview

 CALIFORNIA CANCER CENTER 

 

When it comes to quality cancer care California Cancer Center is paving the way for passionate and skilled professionals to be part of a new world-class cancer center. As cancer continues to be one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the nation, our goal is to provide premier oncologic care for the patients and families of the Central Valley and surrounding regions.

 

The California Cancer Center is a nationally accredited cancer program committed to excellence in biomedical care and all-inclusive patient support. The impressive new three story comprehensive cancer center will be located on the Clovis Campus. It will be the region’s first cancer center working closely with USCF medical staff and providing outpatient cancer treatments, the latest in cancer research and pioneering clinical trials.  

 

The center offers cutting-edge technology including radiation oncology, imaging, labs, and dispensing pharmacy.  The center will have a dedicated radiation oncology clinic equipped with 3 conventional radiation therapy machines, 1 CyberKnife machine as well as onsite PET/CT scanner, CT Simulator, and MRI.

 

Our center was awarded a three-year accreditation, which is the highest (ACOS) American College of Surgeons designed program in the San Joaquin Valley. Our cancer programs offers a full scope of cancer programs through an on-site evaluation by experienced health care professionals. We are (CoC) Commission on Cancer accredited and are committed to providing the highest level of quality cancer care. With a complete range of state of the art services and equipment in the region our advanced technology include: two Elekta linear accelerators, a CyberKnife with an active SRS/SBRTprogram, Pinnacle Treatment Planning System,  Raystation software, Mosaiq EMR, Toshiba large Bore CT scanner, a Varian HDR unit and an active prostate seed implant brachytherapy program.

 

We are building a new comprehensive cancer center in nearby Clovis.  In addition to our current equipment, we will be adding a Philips Big Bore CT simulator, a Philips 3T MRI capable of performing MRI simulations, and a fully digital Vereos PET/CT.  Initially we will move the two Elekta Inifinty accelerators to the new center and install a state of the art TrueBeam. With the advent of all this new technology, the new cancer center will need a fully dedicated medical physics program.
