Saratoga Hospital’s Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center provides technologically advanced radiation oncology treatments with a commitment to excellence and great care for each and every patient.
Radiation therapy uses high-energy particles or waves to treat cancer and other diseases. Depending on a patient’s condition, the goal of radiation therapy may be to shrink or destroy a tumor or to slow its growth. Patients at the Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center benefit from the same advanced technology available elsewhere in the region, including intensity modulated radiation therapy ( IMRT ), a dual energy linear accelerator with multi-leaf collimation, a high-speed multi-slice CT simulator, and an image-guided tumor localization system. These advanced technologies deliver high doses of radiation with as little damage as possible to surrounding tissues, enabling treatment of a wide range of cancers right here in Saratoga, close to home for many patients.
Saratoga Hospital’s Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center was designed to meet the needs of today’s cancer patients and their loved ones.
Many of the amenities – from the soothing artwork in the ceilings of treatment rooms to the Saratoga Hospital Guild Circle of Care Resource Center – are the result of input from cancer survivors, their friends and family members, and others whose lives have been touched by this disease.
In 2018, the Hospital added a second linear accelerator (LINAC) to help meet the needs of a cancer program that now serves twice as many patients as in 2005. A true-beam accelerator, the state-of-the-art LINAC enables the Hospital to provide advanced precision therapy. Equally important, having two LINACs will ensure that patients have access to radiation therapy even when one machine is out of service for updates or testing.
Northeastern Radiation Oncology, PLLC, offers our patients an outstanding team of board-certified physicians providing services at the Center. This compassionate team of professionals are dedicated to providing the best possible experience for you and your loved ones. Their qualifications and expertise are matched by their genuine concern for you, both as a patient and as an individual.

External beam radiation therapy uses a machine that directes high-energy rays from outside the body to the targeted area or tumor.
We now offer two dual energy linear accelerators with multi-leaf collimation, or LINAC devices, which treat any part of the body with external beam radiation targeted tumors from multiple angles.
Stereotactic technology allows us to target tumors more precisely and treat lesions in places that were previously off limits due to risks to normal tissues
Systemic radiation utilizes radioactive drugs that can be delivered orally or intravenously to treat certain types of cancer. Our radiation oncologists provide the oral version of this treatment.
Our high-speed multi-slice CT simulator can return high-resolution imaging with great speed and accuracy.
Our Saratoga Hospital Guild Circle of Care Resource Center is home to books and other sources of information, including lists of helpful websites, support groups, and organizations that offer services for cancer patients. We offer a number of support groups and monthly meetings at Saratoga Hospital. You can view our upcoming schedule by clicking here.
Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) uses linear accelerators to treat both cancerous and noncancerous tumors. This technology allows for precise delivery of radiation doses, which effectively minimizes the dose to surrounding normal tissues, safely and precisely.
With our image-guided tumor localization system, radiation oncologists can provide treatment directly at the tumor site.
Our cancer services have been accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. The voluntary accreditation demonstrates that Saratoga Hospital meets the highest standards for quality of cancer care. Saratoga Hospital and many of its programs and services have received some of the highest available recognition for quality and care.
Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center is accredited by the American College of Radiation Oncology.
