CHICAGO, Feb. 22, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- Accelitech LLC, a leading developer of stereotactic radiosurgery and cancer treatment programs, is pleased to announce its newest CyberKnife cancer center, which will begin treating patients in Chicago in the summer of 2012. Developed through a partnership between Accelitech, physicians and Swedish Covenant Hospital, the new CyberKnife Cancer Institute of Chicago will provide state-of-the-art CyberKnife treatment to patients from Chicago and beyond. This will be the first CyberKnife center within the city limits and will feature the latest technology of its kind in the region.

Centrally located and conveniently accessible from both downtown and suburban locations, the new 10,000-square-foot facility, now under construction, will be located at 160 East Illinois, in the heart of Chicago.
