Our Story

On April 30, 1990, the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute opened its doors to patients from all over North Central Florida. The Institute was named after “Rusty” Boissoneault who died of Hodgkin’s Disease (lymphatic cancer) at the age of 21. He was a high school friend of the founder’s, Dr. Norman Anderson, who credits Rusty with helping him dedicate his life’s work to the best cancer care possible, in memory of his childhood friend.

The institute is now operating five clinics. In 1998 the Institute was awarded accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the highest honor that can be awarded a radiation oncology practice in the United States of America. The institute has maintained this accreditation ever since.

It is our mission to be recognized for providing our patients and communities with the highest quality medical services using the most advanced technology, delivered in a timely manner whenever necessary.

We will accomplish this in cooperation with the needs of referring physicians and employees in an atmosphere which emphasizes compassion for the patients as part of a family unit, while supporting other non-medical community needs.
