Executive Director Message

StuartKlein.pngAs the first proton therapy center in the Southeast U.S., it is logical that we would have many “firsts.” We did not stop breaking new ground when we treated our first patient. Instead we have continually pushed ahead to develop and discover ways to best use proton therapy for the benefit of our patients. We share our experiences with other proton therapy providers and cancer specialists. We rely on the collaboration of many people and organizations in our community and worldwide to achieve a greater good. Whether we are publishing patient outcomes or developing new educational tools for children, our ultimate goal is to help patients today and in future generations become cancer-free with minimal to no side effects.
