Shortening the road to recovery
It’s a new, promising day for those in Onslow County who are battling cancer. Onslow Radiation Oncology, conveniently located on the Onslow Memorial Hospital campus, is now filled with the best people and technology and is ready to help. Better still, it’s local. This means fewer drives to distant locations. Less time at hotels. Less money spent on gas, less time off work, and fewer hassles all around. Because frankly, being sick with cancer is challenging enough.
"Care as good as what is available at any medical center in the state" - Dr. Julian Roseman

In October, 2012, Onslow Memorial celebrated the indomitable human spirit — the “Survivor Spirit” — by sharing stories from four inspiring women. By enduring and surviving one of the most difficult challenges a person can face, they offer the rest of us a great life lesson: that love, faith and courage can lift hope to a level that overcomes the cold realities of a vicious disease.

Your local radiation therapy partner
Under the directorship of Jacksonville’s Dr. Randy Blackburn, Onslow Radiation Oncology offers the best equipment, technology and talent available in the state and is ready to partner with you in developing and fulfilling a successful treatment plan for your patients. This center accomplishes the fundamental goal of Onslow Memorial and our partner, Vidant Medical Center, to establish a top-level oncology resource to benefit the local area. “It is a beautiful facility with very good technicians and physicians.” Dr. John Westbrook says of the $7 million, 10,000-square-foot facility.
Access to care helps patients in their fight. A local treatment option gives your patients the best chance at recovery. With less time on the road away from work and loved ones, a local option alleviates much of the stress patients and families feel in their quest to receive these vital treatments. In addition, the convenience and financial benefits will allow more people to access this care. This is important, as you know, because the chances of cancer recurring can drop 40 percent with proper radiation treatment.
“I'm available to discuss your patients’ care at any time.”
– Dr. Randy Blackburn
