Dr. Eric Karp’s dream of building the finest radiation treatment center for cancer patients was realized in 1993 with the opening of Rahway Regional Cancer Center.
His vision was to provide a level of care and a total patient experience unachievable at large institutions and corporate driven practice groups.
Dr. Karp understood that there are unnecessary challenges in delivering quality care at supersized and impersonal facilities.
Dr. Karp developed an alternative, Rahway Regional Cancer Center (RRCC), a truly independent, free standing radiation oncology treatment facility, fully focused on one thing: patient care. RRCC combines an overwhelming dedication to technical superiority and attention to detail in a warm, caring and focused environment.
The RRCC Difference
RRCC offers what we refer to as “The RRCC Difference.” We are all about the patient and offering the best possible care and the right care. At RRCC, no effort is spared in optimizing every aspect of each patient’s total experience.
It starts with calling our office – you are connected to a staff member within 3 rings of the phone. There are no automated phone prompts to navigate and waste your time. You will be given an appointment immediately. There is no waiting.
While we provide daily door-to-door transport when necessary, patients who drive themselves will note our free, abundant parking right at our doorstep. No distant walks, no parking garages, no elevators, no steps.
When you enter the facility, you will be cordially greeted and assisted with any necessary paperwork. You will meet with an experienced insurance expert who will review your coverage and assist you with any questions.
Everyone on our staff is here to help you and make this process easier for you.
When you meet Dr. Karp, it will be clear that you are being cared for by one of the top radiation oncologists in the country.

He takes full responsibility and is completely accountable for every aspect of your care.
When you are receiving treatment, you will be cared for by a highly experienced and credentialed team. Our board certified physicist who received his PhD at Columbia University has been with us since our opening. Our nurses have been working together at RRCC for over 20 years. Our radiation technologists have all worked together at RRCC for over 10 years. This is a highly experienced and closely coordinated team that is completely focused on your care. You will come to view us as family and friends.
Last but not least, Dr. Karp prides himself on total and immediate accessibility 24 hours a day/365 days a year. Literally. If called, if he is not immediately available, he WILL call you back as soon as humanly possible. He cares.
A center like no other, RRCC has been continuously accredited by the American College of Radiology for more than 15 consecutive years, last being re-certified for the maximum 3 year term in 2017.
