Facility

In April 2017, we opened a 63,000-square-foot radiation oncology building dedicated solely to the purpose of treating cancer. The new center consolidated our two main clinics to bring patient care, physics, and research under one roof. Future plans include expansion and the development of a heavy ion therapy and research center.
