About The Radiation Center of Greater Nashua
The Radiation Center of Greater Nashua provides local access to the highest quality radiation therapy services and was the first in New England to achieve APEx® Accreditation by ASTRO (American Society for Radiation Oncology). The Center is one of a handful of freestanding radiation therapy facilities in the United States. This means that patients from the greater Nashua area and surrounding communities have a local option for high-quality and cost-effective care that is a fraction of the cost of hospital-based radiation centers. Established in 1992 by Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, Southern New Hampshire Medical Center and St. Joseph Hospital, the Center’s comprehensive care team has helped thousands of patients and their families. Over its 30-year history, the Center has continuously invested in innovative, state-of-the art technology such as RaySearch Laboratories RayStation, VisionRT AlignRT Advance tattoo-free treatment, and Elekta linear accelerators. As a result, patients don’t need to travel further from home to a larger center. The Radiation Center of Greater Nashua provides the same excellent standard of care and exceptional treatment.
