COVID-19: Information on the Novel Coronavirus for Northeast Radiation Oncology (NROC), patients, family members, and staff

As a community-based cancer center fully committed to our mission of caring for our patients, their family members and our staff, NROC continues to treat patients with exceptional care and maximum safety. Before, during and after our region’s fight through Coronavirus, we're here for you. We are thankful for your support, and inspired by your strength.

We are following the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations as well as taking guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health. (PA.DOH).

We are asking patients to limit family members who come in for their visits to one other person at this time. We ask that no children less than 12 years of age accompany patients to the cancer center at any time until further notice.

We are temporarily suspending our exercise program, yoga program, and cancer support groups until further notice from the Department of Health.

Please rest assured that we are following all necessary precautions to ensure proper continuity of care.
