Mayo Clinic Health System in Waycross Expands Cancer Services

January 05, 2015

A newer, stronger Mayo Clinic Health System is here. Mayo has been investing and building its practice all year, bringing over 30 new providers to our community. Today, Mayo announced it is expanding its services once again by providing radiation oncology services at the location previously known as CurePoint. This is just another example of the health system’s commitment to ensuring friends and neighbors receive the highest quality health care services possible, right here at home.

On March 1, Byron May, M.D., a radiation oncologist, will join Mayo Clinic Health System’s team of providers. In the interim, a radiation oncologist will be on staff to treat patients with the world-class care that is the Mayo Clinic standard.

“One of the first things we’ll do is replace the linear accelerator and CT scanner,” says Steven J. Buskirk, M.D., chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Mayo Clinic in Florida. “This new equipment, with a value of $1.15 million, will allow us to provide more precise treatment to patients on our Waycross campus.”

“This is an exciting time for our community’s health system,” says Asit Jha, M.D., a long-time Hematology/Oncology specialist in Waycross. “We experienced rapid growth in 2014, and expect even more growth and expansion of services in this new year.”

Boasting an already highly experienced and diversified medical staff, and anticipating the arrival of even more talented health care professionals, the Waycross health system continues to expand its services and abilities in order to bring the knowledge and resources of Mayo Clinic to our community.
