LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Yesterday, at the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), Optivus Proton Therapy, Inc. (Optivus(R)) and Parsons Commercial Technology Group Inc., a global business unit of Parsons Corporation, announced a historic teaming agreement has been formalized between the two companies to globally produce turn-key proton beam therapy centers.

Founded in 1944, Parsons is one of the largest 100% employee-owned management, engineering, and construction companies in the United States.

"Parsons collaborates with innovators and leaders in many diversified markets. We are thrilled to add the development of proton beam therapy centers, with Optivus, to our wide-ranging portfolio," said John Small, Parsons Group President.

The facility commissioned and maintained by Optivus has enjoyed more success than all other comparable competitors' systems, with higher throughput, the most patients treated, and the most types of diseases treated with the most reliable and efficient device on the market.
