Cancer Care – Without Compromise

When it comes to cancer care, quality matters most. You would travel miles and miles for the high-quality care you or a loved one needs – if that’s what it takes.

However, life sometimes intervenes. A job. Family responsibilities. Not enough time – or energy – to drive to a top cancer center in downtown Baltimore or DC every weekday for several weeks to complete radiation therapy.

Central Maryland Radiation Oncology (CMRO) means that you don’t have to decide between the radiation oncology expertise of the nation’s leading cancer centers and the convenience of community-based care. At CMRO, the partnership between University of Maryland Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Medicine allows us to bring advanced radiation therapy and top physicians right to you, in Howard County.

An Ideal Way to Receive Radiation Therapy

Choosing CMRO for your care provides you with the expertise of not just one but two National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer centers. These NCI centers are among the nation’s most elite, focused on research that improves cancer treatment and prevention. Scientific leaders at NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers receive extra funding to conduct groundbreaking research that fights cancer.

Expert Doctors

Our radiation oncologists not only provide extraordinary care, they are academic leaders in their field.

Advanced Treatments

Our patients have access to a broad range of advanced radiation treatment technologies at CMRO as well as access to specialized treatments located in downtown Baltimore. You have the option to participate in the full range of national clinical trials offered at our larger downtown centers right in Howard County.

Close-to-Home Community Setting

It Matters Where You Go

Choosing a radiation therapy center can be difficult. Do you travel to a major hospital for leading-edge expertise? Or find a center closer to home because you’ll need many treatment sessions?

With CMRO in Columbia, the partnership between University of Maryland Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Medicine makes this decision easier. Our patients receive advanced, university-based radiation therapy and convenient, close-to-home care.
