Executive Director Message


StuartKlein.pngProton therapy continues to expand in the U.S. Back in 2006 when we opened, we were the fifth facility to operate in the U.S. Today there are now 27 proton facilities scattered across the country with even more being considered. What makes us different? In short, I believe it’s our people. We have approximately 220 employees that work in our center. Each represents the best and the brightest with an unquestioning dedication to provide our patients with the best care possible. This is engrained in our DNA. We constantly work hard to achieve this goal, and are grateful for the opportunity to serve our patients on their journey in beating cancer. We’re always open to suggestions on how to improve our service. Please let us know if there’s anything you feel we could do to improve.
