Rideout Cancer Center, in partnership with UC Davis Health Cancer Care Network, has scheduled a Public Tour for the newly expanded Cancer Center at 12pm, January 12 at 618 G Street (at the Cancer Center) in Marysville.

The expansion adds 16,261 square feet of new construction – making the entire facility more than 42,000 square feet and adding:

  • 11 additional Transfusion Bays, for a total of 25
  • 6 additional Exam Rooms for a total of 14
  • 1 new PET CT Scanner
  • 1 new Ultrasound
  • 1 new True Beam Linear Accelerator
  • New Reception & Waiting area & Office Space
  • A remodel of the existing Pharmacy

The Rideout Cancer Center (RCC) provides cancer patients with the most up-to-date and effective cancer care in our community. UC Davis is a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer center, which comprises research, clinical trials and the latest technology. Our partnership with UC Davis sets high standards in providing quality care to our patients. Our patients receive the quality of care they might expect from a large university medical center with the compassion and personalization of a community based hospital.

RCC is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (ACoS CoC) as a "Community Cancer Program". This accreditation requires that we follow high standards of care and provide a more comprehensive approach to cancer treatment.

The 42,000 square foot cancer center integrates care management, Radiation Oncology, PET/CT Services, Medical Oncology (Chemotherapy), Hematology (Blood Diseases) and Clinical Trials with a team of highly trained board certified physicians; oncology certified nurses (OCN's) and certified Radiation Therapists.

We offer all these services under one roof because we have found that a comprehensive, integrated treatment strategy more effectively treats the whole person physically, psychologically, and emotionally.

A wonderful assemblage of Healing Artwork – paintings, photos, mobiles, textiles, metal and glass - is located throughout the Cancer Center, courtesy of the Rideout Foundation and RCC donors. For patients and their families, the art will provide a source of comfort and inspiration.
