ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The Community Cancer Center and the Oregon Health and Science University have signed an agreement which will provide improved radiation oncology services in Roseburg.

According to officials, the agreement starts Jan. 1, 2020.

CCC’s two radiation oncologists, Dr. Sylvia Gosline and Dr. Randy Moore, will become official staff at OHSU in Portland.

Officials said the two physicians will have access to OHSU’s radiation oncology research and technology.

Despite being staffed by OHSU, they said the physicians will continue their practice in Roseburg. They said the physicians will be traveling to Portland every few months to work with OHSU patients and vice versa for OHSU physicians.

“That’s not going to disrupt the continuity of care for our patients,” said Tammy Turner, the executive director at the Community Cancer Center. “The patients will get their own physician and handle their care throughout their treatment course.”

Turner also said OHSU is actively recruiting a third physician to work at the cancer center in Roseburg. In time, she said that physician will become the new Medical Director of Radiation Oncology at CCC.
