About Stanford Medicine

Stanford Medicine is an integrated academic health system comprising the Stanford School of Medicine and adult and pediatric health care delivery systems. Together, they harness the full potential of biomedicine through collaborative research, education and clinical care for patients. For more information, please visit med.stanford.edu.

The Department of Radiation Oncology offers radiation therapy services at 3 locations that are at reasonable commuting service from the Stanford Comprehensive Cancer Center in Palo Alto, one of them being the Stanford Cancer Center South Bay in San Jose. Physicists and medical faculty cover all facilities on a need-basis and these are considered a single site for the purposes of the medical physics residency training. 

The facilities here are part of Department of Radiation Oncology Outreach Program. 

The four Stanford-owned facilities are below and rotating into these facilities is not uncommon.

Stanford Cancer Center Palo Alto

Stanford Cancer Center is a state-of-the-art medical building offering the latest advances in patient-focused treatment in a warm and supportive environment. Consolidating our resources for diagnosing and treating cancer, the Cancer Center enhances Stanford's team approach to care, while enabling patients and their families to stay in one location for procedures and tests, and focus on healing.

Stanford Cancer Center South Bay

Stanford Cancer Center is recognized worldwide for our advanced clinical care, scientific research and technological inventions. It's all available at our newest location, Stanford Cancer Center South Bay.

Stanford Cancer Center South Bay brings together world-class specialists and sophisticated technology in a spacious, serene, state-of-the-art building designed by patients, for patients. We offer the most advanced, innovative treatments, access to more than 300 clinical trials, and the ease and efficiency of a single, convenient location.

Stanford Cancer Center East Bay

Stanford Health Care Tri-Valley (formerly ValleyCare) provides high-quality care rooted in science and compassion to support the health and well-being of its community in the East Bay and beyond. The hospital is part of Stanford Medicine.
