The Tate Center at Baltimore Washington Medical Center is dedicated to providing radiation therapy to aggressively attack tumors while preserving healthy cells -- with the goal of limiting side effects while maximizing treatment benefits.

The Tate Center is affiliated with the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center (UMGCC) in downtown Baltimore, which means that our patients benefit from the cutting-edge care available at a large, academic, National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center.

Patients at the Tate Center have access to advanced technology provided by Baltimore Washington Medical Center's own cancer specialists and those from UMGCC, at one convenient Glen Burnie, Maryland, location.

Our Services

Radiation oncology services include:

 

Telemedicine Technology

The physicians at the Tate Cancer Center work closely with cancer experts at UMGCC's downtown Baltimore campus. Using the latest teleconferencing technology, our physicians review patient cases weekly with UMGCC oncology specialists to evaluate and consider all treatment options available here, as well as at UMGCC. In this way, we offer patients the best, most comprehensive cancer care possible.


Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are studies designed to find new and better ways to treat patients with cancer. Access to clinical trials is one of the most important advantages of receiving your radiation therapy at the Tate Center. We offer patients access to many of the 125 clinical trials currently being conducted at UMGCC. In this way, our patients may be eligible for new treatments not yet commercially available elsewhere. Our staff research associate coordinates clinical trial participation for those patients who are interested.

Treatment Team

Baltimore Washington Medical Center’s own cancer specialists, as well as those at UMGCC in Baltimore, provide radiation oncology services at the Tate Center.
