ROSEBURG, Ore. – A new partnership is looking to create better care for cancer patients in Douglas County.

The Community Cancer Center in Roseburg is teaming up with Oregon Health and Science university in Portland.

They’re now sharing doctors and other resources, which means patients received the best treatment possible.

The radiation oncologists at the center are now staff members at the university.

“It will actually improve the service we are doing already,” said Tammy Turner with the Community Cancer Center. “We’ll collaborate with them and learn techniques they may be doing at their facility and protocols at OHSU, and the Community Cancer Center will be able to adapt those protocols to our facility as well.”

The community cancer center is celebrating its 40th anniversary. It was created by a group of people frustrated that they had to travel to Portland or Eugene to get care. They started treating patients in 1980 and in 2009, they moved into their state-of-the-art facility on Northwest Stewart Parkway. It’s 44,000 square feet, which means they have enough room to expand and patients can get all their care under one roof.
