Chairman's Welcome

It is my distinct pleasure to personally welcome you to the website of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center.  I am a proud member of an exceptional Department that offers state-of-the-art therapy in a compassionate and supportive environment.  Over 99% of our patients tell us that they would recommend our center to others in need of radiation treatment.

The radiation oncology department is an integral component of a cancer program that received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Sugeons Commission on Cancer, recognition as a Top Performer in Cancer Care by US News and World Report, and the highest accreditation scores from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.  In November 2013, we were awarded a full three year accreditation from the American College of Radiology.  Every day, I witness members of our team carrying out Good Samaritan's goal to continue Christ's healing mission by promoting excellence in care for those in need and it is truly inspiring.

I hope you find this website helpful to you and your family.


Johnny Kao, MD
Chairman of Radiation Oncology
