Map of US Proton Treatment Centers

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

I thought it would be helpful to readers and visitors to have a visual map of the proton treatment centers around the US. Many people will want to know geographically where the nearest center is to their home, and this gives you a quick glance of both centers in operations, as well as those that are under construction. If you notice a center that is missing, please let us know – post a comment to this blog post.

Update: Mayo Clinic Building Two Proton Treatment Facilities

Sunday, January 5th, 2014

We posted a note about three years ago about the exciting news that the Mayo Clinic had decided to embrace Proton treatment and was building two new facilities. This is just a short note on progress with their buildings.

As a reminder, the Mayo Clinic is building two facilities.

The first facility is being built in Rochester, Minnesota and the ground breaking took place on Sept 15, 2011. They are expecting to be treating patients some time in mid to late 2015. Below are some renderings of what the facility will look like:

The second facility is being built in Phoenix, Arizona and the ground breaking took place on Dec 13, 2011. They are expecting to be receiving patients some time in early 2016. Below are some renderings of what the facility will look like:

Here is an overview of the schedule for these two facilities as projected in January, 2014:
