On Nov. 4, Regional Cancer Care Associates (RCCA) will move from its current location within Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mt. Holly to new space within the Virtua Samson Cancer Center in Moorestown.
“When Virtua announced plans to develop their dedicated cancer center in Moorestown, a 48,000-square-foot facility that opened in 2018, they invited us to be the medical oncology tenants onsite,” shared RCCA oncologist Seth Berk, MD, of RCCA Mt. Holly, an over 50-year-old practice that rented space within Virtua Memorial Hospital for the past 25 years and joined the RCCA family in 2012. “We have a very close relationship with Virtua that’s been built over 50 years, with many of our physicians playing key leadership roles at Virtua, and we were honored to be asked to provide medical oncology services there.”
At RCCA — one of the nation’s largest networks of oncology specialists, with more than 130 physicians and hundreds of other healthcare professionals practicing at 31 locations throughout New Jersey, Maryland, and Connecticut – “patients have always had access to the most highly trained physicians providing cutting-edge care and opportunities to participate in leading research and clinical trials,” Dr. Berk shared. “Now, within the new center in Moorestown, patients will have access to all of our services as well as to radiation oncology, cancer genetics, infusion services and chemo management system, social work specialists, and nurse navigation services all under one roof.” In addition, he said, “many of the surgeons are located in a Virtua facility right across the street, which will further enhance convenience and enable easier referrals to different services for patients.”RCCA’s new Moorestown location also represents a convenient, close-to-home alternative, which avoids the need for South Jersey residents to travel into Philadelphia for their cancer care.
In addition to its presence within the state-of-the-art new facility and provision of leading-edge, individualized, and highly compassionate care for cancer and blood disorders, “RCCA is a major supporter of/donor to the RCCA hair boutique in the Virtua Samson Cancer Center, which offers specialized hair services (furnished by Rizzieri Salon) free of charge to patients undergoing chemotherapy,” Dr. Berk said.
Located just 7 miles from its former site in Mt. Holly, “our newer physical plant is within a more contemporary setting.The medical oncology team at RCCA often assists patients by helping to direct and guide them through the services they require as the “conductor of the show” through a stressful time.
As they prepare to open their doors on their new location, Dr. Berk and the RCCA team are excited about the move and the promise it holds for existing patients and members of the surrounding community who are addressing a cancer diagnosis. “Our RCCA practice is proud to be viewed as a proactive community and hospital partner,” Dr. Berk said. “We hope to continue differentiating ourselves as a convenient center for excellent care that stresses compassion and offers a family atmosphere where our patients’ needs always come first.”
