Proton Therapy Center
The proton therapy facility, in partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, will be the first of its kind in central Ohio. Proton therapy is an advanced type of radiation treatment that uses protons (positively charged particles) instead of x-rays to kill cancer cells. A machine delivers a high-energy proton beam painlessly through the skin from outside the body.
Proton therapy is expected to utilize 60,000 square feet and account for approximately $105 million of the overall project budget. Nationwide Children’s has committed up to 50% of the expected proton center project cost.
