Oroville Hospital opens new radiation oncology clinic

Oroville Hospital’s new Radiation Oncology Clinic, opened on Sept. 17, came with a new radiation oncologist, Dr. Edward Ordorica.

The new clinic in the OroHealth Medical Plaza (2809 Olive Highway) allows for the expansion of Oroville Hospital’s Cancer Care program, which includes “a full range of treatment solutions, highly skilled physicians, [a] compassionate clinical team, and state-of-the-art technology,” according to a hospital press release.

“It is truly exciting to witness the profound enhancements at Oroville Hospital,” Ordorica said in the press release, noting that having the new radiation therapy and support resources all under one roof “offers a unique convenience for my cancer patients.”

Radiation therapy is the practice of using focused ionizing radiation to eliminate cancerous cells.
