Welcome to Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute

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.

Accredited Radiation Oncologist by ASTRO

The Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute, a radiation oncology practice with two offices in Ocala, Marion County; one in Inverness and one in Lecanto, Citrus County; and one in the Villages Medical Center, Sumter County has been reaccredited as a result of a recent survey (2008) by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

Physicians of the recently reaccredited practice are:

ACR awards accreditation to a radiation oncology group for the achievement of high practice standards after a voluntary survey of their practice. Approximately 10% of free-standing radiation oncology centers in the US are currently accredited. Surveys are conducted by radiation oncologists and medical physicists who are members of the ACR. They assess the quality of the work being performed by physicians and medical physicists, as well as staff efficiency, quality assessment and improvement activities including peer review, and the adequacy of space and equipment within the practice. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.

The American College of Radiology is a national organization servicing more than 30,000 radiologists, radiation oncologists and medical physicists. Programs focus on the practice of radiation oncology and radiology, and defining standards to promote the delivery of quality radiologic health services.
