Welcome to the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Taussig Cancer Institute. We understand that going through radiation treatment can be stressful, which is why our newly renovated radiotherapy treatment area is designed for your comfort.
Our waiting rooms have large flat screen televisions, complimentary coffee, and board games to entertain yourself.
The Radiation Oncology Department at the main campus is located on the second floor of the T building (T-28). Our friendly staff will greet you upon arrival and help direct you to your appointment.
The Pet Therapy Program at the Cleveland Clinic provides emotional support, increases smiles, laughter, and generally reduces anxiety for patients and their families.
Dog handlers and their pets deliver World Class Service by visiting in the Cleveland Clinic Children's, on nursing units, in the Taussig Cancer Center, and in the Surgical Family Lounge.

By working with a multidisciplinary approach, our physicians are able to explore all medical, radiation, and surgical options that suit your needs the best.
Final Treatment Ceremony
After completing your final radiation treatment at the Taussig Cancer Institute, patients participate in a "bell ringing ceremony" in order to celebrate this accomplishment.
Ringing the bell helps to empower the patient and lets him or her know that cancer can be overcome.
