StuartKlein.pngThe building addition that will house our new single-room proton therapy system has reached several construction milestones. We marked a capping off in May with the final concrete pour. Since then, the exterior walls have been installed and interior work is progressing. Within the next few months, we will receive delivery of the proton therapy system – the cyclotron and gantry. This technology will add to our existing array of proton therapy, conventional radiation therapy and imaging equipment, currently considered the most advanced radiation oncology facility in the Southeast U.S. In the hands of our expert physicians, physicists, nurses and radiation therapists, this advanced technology is used to offer patients the highest quality cancer care and the best chance for excellent results. Our stature as a leading proton therapy facility has never been stronger, and we look forward to continuing to serve the needs of cancer patients in our region and beyond.
