Executive Director Message

StuartKlein.pngThere are now 32 operating proton therapy centers in the U.S. and more on the way. While this means a greater number of cancer patients may have a facility nearby, it also means patients need to look deeper at the quality of the centers offering proton therapy before deciding where to be treated. Just because the equipment is in the building doesn’t necessarily guarantee the center has the expertise and experience needed to provide high-quality proton therapy. The training and skill of the physicians and the entire clinical team can mean the difference in a patient’s outcome including quality of life following treatment. The UF Health Proton Therapy Institute has the most experienced proton therapy physicians and staff in the Southeast U.S. and is nationally accredited by the American College of Radiology. To read more about us and what sets us apart, I invite you to visit our website.
