Northeastern Nevada Radiation Oncology Center to be Built in Elko, Nevada
Date:8/25/2014

ELKO, Nev., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Douglas Debenham, board certified radiation oncologist, has announced plans to build a new radiation oncology center in Elko, Nevada this year.  The new Northeastern Nevada Radiation Oncology Center will be fully operational and treating patients by the first quarter of 2015, thanks to a partnership between RBS Evolution (RBSE), a provider of cancer treatment centers in underserved communities, and Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital, according to executives of both companies. 

Currently, cancer patients in the region who need radiation therapy must travel great distances for their treatments.  Radiation treatments are often prescribed five times a week, for several weeks at a time, creating a need for patients to make long daily trips, or to secure temporary living arrangements in another city.  

"This community is very fortunate to have outstanding medical services in place," says Debenham.   "My hope is that by adding a local cancer center, patients will be able to stay closer to home for all of their medical needs."  The center will be built on the campus of Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital, allowing patients easy access to the hospital's imaging department, as well as other physicians and services.  The center will feature Elekta Synergy, a radiation treatment system with an integrated 3D imaging system that allows physicians to more precisely target tumors with radiation beams. 

"We are very pleased to be working with Dr. Debenham," said Dan Moore, CEO of RBSE. "His vision to build a center here in Elko is in line with our mission of providing cancer care to rural, underserved areas.    Having a state-of-the-art radiation oncology center in Elko will all
