The co-founder of Integrated Oncology Network, LLC (ION), Jeffrey Goffman was named to the Barney School of Business Hall of Fame in 2014 for his work in national radiation oncology management and cancer center development. Jeffrey Goffman continues to impact the field of oncology by creating partnerships with companies such as Covenant Health.
In September of 2015, ION, subsidiary SightLine Health, LLC, and Covenant Health announced its plans to open Covenant Health Outpatient Radiation Treatment Center in Lubbock, Texas. The facility, supported by the Joe Arrington Cancer Research and Treatment Center, will enhance Covenant Health oncology services by making it more accessible in the community. Health care professionals will have use of modern technologies, like image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The latter delivers external beam radiation therapy with precision. IGRT increases IMRT’s effectiveness by sending high doses of radiation directly to treatment areas. This reduces radiation exposure to surrounding tissues.
