Dallas Morning News, September 5, 2012

Dallas Market Center Land L.P. is seeking city approval to develop the land for the Dallas Proton Treatment Center

UT Southwestern Medical Center plans to operate the $225 million, 100,000-square-foot advanced medical facility.

This is to be owned and funded by Advanced Particle Therapy a San Diego based firm that owns similar facilities in San Diego, Baltimore and Atlanta.

Dr. Bruce Meyer, executive VP for health system affairs at UTSW, said in a statement, “this is an exciting development in our ability to offer patients in the region  access to the best possible treatment options and provide a leadership role in how to best apply this technology.”

At least someone in the Dallas area is interested in using “protons” and I am happy!  This would be about 40 minutes from my home.

Thank goodness! Dallas has lagged behind even Oklahoma City, so it’s about time. My proton treatment was through M.D. Anderson in Houston where I was treated wonderfully by a great staff. 3 years now and doing great !
