Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center

Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center – Health Central Hospital will be the first in Central Florida and one of only six facilities in the country to treat cancer with MRI-guided radiotherapy.

The $28 million facility, funded primarily by a $21 million grant from the West Orange Healthcare District (the District), will offer expanded chemotherapy and radiation treatment areas, medical oncology services, surgical oncology consultations, laboratory facilities, and Cancer Support Community programs. At 30,000 square feet, it almost doubles the size of the existing facility located near the Orlando Health Health Central Hospital campus.

Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center – Health Central Hospital will be the first in Central Florida and one of only six facilities in the country to treat cancer with MRI-guided radiotherapy. The cancer-fighting technology is called MRIdian® and allows specialists to track and adjust its radiation beam to any subtle changes in the tumor and surrounding tissue during treatment. As a result, cancer patients benefit from truly personalized radiation therapy while minimizing radiation exposure to surrounding tissue.
