McLaren Health Care Forming Partnership With ProTom International to Build First Proton Beam Therapy Center In Michigan
Date:9/22/2009

FLINT, Mich., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Cancer patients residing in and near Michigan are one step closer to receiving one of the most advanced forms of treatment available with a new partnership being formed between McLaren Health Care and ProTom International, a Texas-based health care technology company.

ProTom's proton therapy system, the Radiance 330, combines the most advanced treatment capabilities in a lower-cost, small footprint solution and represents the next-generation of proton therapy. The novel compact accelerator design of the Radiance 330 supports active scanning beam delivery techniques with dynamic energy and intensity modulation for true 3-dimensional IMPT, providing superior treatment precision with significantly reduced capital and operating costs. This technology allows for proton beam centers to be built for about one-third the cost (currently upwards of $150 million) and on a much smaller footprint of conventionally built centers. Conventional proton beam centers span the size of a football field.

"We are very excited to bring this life-saving technology to Michigan," said McLaren Health Care President and CEO Philip A. Incarnati. "Proton beam therapy represents an innovation in cancer treatment, and ProTom's technology is another huge step forward in making this treatment more accessible to a greater number of people. We're proud to take a leadership role in bringing such an important advancement to patients across our state and the Midwest."

"We said from the beginning that we wanted to provide proton beam therapy to Michigan in a way that would best benefit our patients, our region, our peers and potential working partners," Incarnati said. "Our partnership with ProTom affirms that goal and, we think, brings us all a step closer to building the state's first proton beam therapy center."
