Virginia Oncology Associates Announces Relocation of Norfolk Office to Sentara Brock Cancer Center
The collaborative facility allows physician-owned Virginia Oncology Associates, Sentara Healthcare, and other medical providers to deliver multi-disciplinary care to the community.
Norfolk, VA – April 2021 Virginia Oncology Associates Norfolk office, now located in the Sentara Brock Cancer Center, has opened their doors and is welcoming patients. VOA remains an independent, physician-owned practice caring for patients with cancer and blood disorders, offering treatment from nine offices located throughout the Hampton Roads area and Eastern North Carolina.
The new cancer center provides patients and their families with a single location for multiple advanced cancer treatment options. This facility will enhance current services provided to the Hampton Roads community by acting as a hub for VOA physicians and other medical providers, allowing physicians to engage in accelerated research and develop new models focused on improving patient care and survivorship services.
“The physicians and staff at Virginia Oncology Associates are excited about our move into the Sentara Brock Cancer Center,” said Dr. Scott Cross, VOA President and medical oncologist/hematologist. “We see this as an opportunity to improve on the multi-disciplinary care we provide to the community, increase clinical trial opportunities through our robust Phase 1 program, and numerous other novel treatment options such as CAR-T therapy. Additionally, we’ve upgraded our radiation therapy services to be able to provide even more targeted treatment options, and we are working on improving our educational services, developing an integrative oncology program, and working closely with Sentara palliative care services, all with the goal of improving on our ability to help people who are facing a cancer diagnosis.”
“A comprehensive facility intended to serve patients in Hampton Roads with gynecologic cancers is overdue, but now a reality,” said Dr. Michael McCollum, gynecologic oncologist with VOA. “The Sentara Brock Cancer Center offers comprehensive services for our patients that include access to research trials, diagnostic imaging, laboratory testing, cutting edge radiation therapy, chemotherapy infusion, social work, palliative care, and other supportive assistance. The Virginia Oncology Associates gynecologic oncology care team is pleased to partner with Sentara to advance the care of our patients.”
“Working with Virginia Oncology Associates in the Sentara Brock Cancer Center gives us more time together to collaborate, which will really enhance our patient’s care and experience,” said Dr. John Sayles, Sentara Colorectal Surgeon and Sentara Brock Cancer Center Steering Committee Physician. “Together we strive to introduce new treatment therapies to the community, deliver quicker access to care, and create a seamless, personalized experience for every patient.”
