Precision Radiotherapy, which is operated by the Mayfield Clinic and UC Health's Department of Radiation Oncology, treats adult and pediatric patients. Its highly sophisticated equipment produces precisely contoured beams of radiation to treat tumors of the brain, head, neck, lung, breast, prostate, liver, kidney, pancreas, colon/rectum, reproductive tract and skin. The center also treats vascular malformations and trigeminal neuralgia.
The company's adherence to best practices is reflected in its:
- focus on patient safety;
- quality assurance program;
- process for monitoring patient satisfaction; and
- hiring practices
In addition to meticulously following all state-mandated safety protocols, much of Precision Radiotherapy's radiosurgery research, through its relationship with UC, has focused on accuracy and safety. Furthermore, every member of the staff is board-certified and licensed, and all physicians are board-certified in radiation oncology.
Patient satisfaction, meanwhile, is high, with 97 percent of patients providing high marks for overall satisfaction, quality of care, confidence in our team, and their likelihood of recommending Precision Radiotherapy to others.
Precision Radiotherapy is currently doubling in size to 18,400 square feet. The expansion will more than double the center's operating capacity, increasing the number of patients treated from 35 per day to 80.
In addition to providing state-of-the-art clinical care, Precision Radiotherapy Center contributes $300,000 annually to the UC Brain Tumor Center for research and education.
"Precision Radiotherapy Center is committed to the advancement of cancer research and the training of future cancer specialists for our community," said Ronald Warnick, MD, Co-Director of Precision Radiotherapy Center, Chairman and President of the Mayfield Clinic, and Medical Director of the UC Brain Tumor Center. "We seek to make a difference in our patients' lives today and in our community's well-being tomorrow."
The West Chester Award Program works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups. Its mission is to recognize the small business community's contributions to the U.S. economy.
