The Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center was designed to meet the needs of today’s cancer patients and their loved ones. In fact, 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.
The Hospital expects to break ground Spring 2018 on a $6 million addition to the Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center (ROC). The project will add 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 will enable the Hospital to provide advanced precision therapy for some rarer cancers.
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. The project has been approved by the City of Saratoga Springs Planning board and Design Review Commission. The state Department of Health has also give the okay, contingent on approval of the final project drawings. Once work begins, construction is expected to take six months.
Fundraising for this project already is underway, with recent leadership gifts totaling $120,000 from our partners at Northeastern Radiation Oncology, Drs. Christopher Dolinsky, Alex Frank, and Lance Hellman.
“We could not be more grateful for their generosity and unwavering commitment – to their patients, their colleagues, and our Hospital,” said Amy Raimo, Executive Director, Saratoga Hospital Foundation and Vice President, Community Engagement. “They are shining examples of what makes the culture here so special.”
