[Fergus Falls, MN] Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Mark Cooper, Radiation Oncologist, to the Lake Region Medical Group.

Dr. Cooper received his medical degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. He completed his Medical Oncology Residency at Henry Ford Hospital, also in Detroit. He is Board Certified in Radiation Oncology by the American Board of Radiology.

“We are so glad Dr. Cooper has chosen our cancer center, program, staff, and patients for his practice,” said Lake Region Medical Group President, Dr. Mark Vukonich. “His excellent skill, calm demeanor and person-centered approach are a great fit.”

Dr. Cooper joins the Cancer Center care team at a very exciting time, as new investments in a linear accelerator and a PET CT scanner this year. The linear accelerator was installed earlier this spring and began service to patients in April. The new PET CT scanner installation continues with plans to be operational later this summer, replacing the traveling scanner that has come in a semi-truck trailer for many years. “These investments in technology are unique and I am very impressed with the linear accelerator’s performance so far,” Cooper said. “I am really looking forward to combining the capabilities of this equipment with the caring and compassionate expertise of our cancer care team to take care of people who are dealing with cancer and help them get that care closer to home,” he added.
