Mission health announces partnership

Mountain Radiation Oncology and Mission Health are enhancing their existing relationship by entering into a Professional Services Agreement effective August 1st. With this agreement, Mountain Radiation Oncology will provide radiation oncology services on behalf of Mission Health.
The physicians within MRO have a long-standing relationship with Mission Health, providing high quality, compassionate, care alongside other clinicians at Mission’s SECU Cancer Center.
“This agreement is in line with our ongoing effort to expand and strengthen our multi-disciplinary team approach within Mission Cancer Services,” said Jonathan Bailey, Vice President, Operations, Mission Health. “With this relationship, Mission continues to elevate the quality of care our patients are receiving.”
Radiation oncology is one of the three primary specialties involved in the treatment of cancer. Radiation oncologists work closely with other physicians such as surgical oncologists and medical oncologists as part of the multi-disciplinary cancer team.
"This agreement is a natural extension of a greater than 35 year partnership between Mission and Mountain Radiation Oncology.  It will allow even closer alignment in oncology care, which will ultimately benefit the cancer patients of our region," said Eric Kuehn, MD at Mountain Radiation Oncology.
Mountain Radiation Oncology, at 21 Hospital Drive, Asheville, is made up of 5 board certified physicians: Kellie Condra, Matthew Hull, Eric Kuehn, W. Mark McCollough, and Sesalie Smathers.
Call their office at 828-254-1111.
