Cancer Clinic in Pottsville is Back After Flooding

News

(WBRE/WYOU-TV)   A cancer clinic devastated by flooding last summer is back and better than ever.

   Geisinger’s Radiation Oncology Pottsville clinic reopened Tuesday for the first time in nine months.

The ribbon cutting marked a multi-million dollar renovation and technology upgrade project.

   The clinic flooded twice last August at one Norwegian plaza.

Geisinger was committed to bringing it back for cancer patients in the community who rely on the convenience of critical treatment.

  “Instead of having to go all the way up to Danville which is maybe about an hour ride or down to another facility they can come here in about, you know, ten or 20 minutes if they’re in the community,” Gregory Treharne, MD, Geisinger Radiation Oncologist

The ribbon cutting for the radiation oncology clinic follows last September’s reopening of Geisinger’s Hematology Oncology clinic at the same building.
