Date:8/6/2009

SOUTH PASADENA, Calif., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- California Cancer Specialists Medical Group, Inc. opened its first free-standing multi-specialty cancer center in South Pasadena. The 22,000 s.f. facility, operating under the banner, South Pasadena Cancer Center, will provide outpatient services in medical, surgical and radiation oncology. In addition, the Center is the first of its kind in the San Gabriel Valley to offer RapidArc((TM)), a new and highly advanced form of image-guided radiation oncology.

"We are pleased to provide the community with a state-of-the art facility," said Vincent Jensen, Chief Operating Officer. "In addition to our technology, we offer highly experienced physicians that are passionate about understanding, treating and curing cancer," he added.

Most recently, 24 California Cancer Specialist physicians were named in "America's Top Doctors for Cancer," a publication now available in bookstores. With more than 180 physician experts in medicine, California Cancer Specialists is the largest multi-specialty medical group in California dedicated to oncology. For more than 30 years, the Group's physicians and scientists have worked to bring new discoveries to the treatment and cure of cancer.

"It is significant for the community to have a multidisciplinary team of cancer specialists under one roof in South Pasadena," said Dr. Benjamin Paz, Executive Medical Director for the Cancer Center. "There have been remarkable advances in the way we diagnose and treat patients today. For the first time, we will be able to deliver an ultra-precise radiation treatment in less than three minutes. Besides decreasing the radiation dose to the patient, this treatment will also increase patient comfort."

In addition to radiation oncology, the South Pasadena Cancer Center will also offer physician expertise in oncology, infusion, hematology, general oncologic surgery, thoracic surgery, gynecologic oncology, neurosurgery and urologic oncology.

California Cancer Specialist physicians are on staff at the area's leading hospitals including City of Hope in Duarte and Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena. The Group has also announced plans to develop a similar integrated cancer center in Lancaster through a partnership with Antelope Valley Hospital.

"The South Pasadena Cancer Center was really designed with the patient in mind," said Dr. Mark McNamara, an oncologist and Medical Director for the Cancer Center. "We offer highly personalized care with access to clinical trials in a patient friendly environment."
