HUPTI LogoWe noticed this just posted to the Hampton University web site:

“The 98,000 sq. ft Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute (HUPTI) is open for patient treatment.”

We take that to mean they are up and running. You can take a look at their timeline HERE.

Hampton University has joined the fight against cancer in opening the nation’s 8th proton therapy facility, the largest in the world. The Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute (HUPTI) brings the latest, most precise cancer-fighting technology to Virginia and beyond.

HUPTI is the first proton therapy institute in the Mid-Atlantic Region, and the only such facility in Virginia. The $225 million, state-of-the-art research and treatment center will treat over 2,000 patients per year including prostate, breast, lung, eye, brain and pediatric cancers.
