New York City is set to get a new radiation treatment center that uses proton beams to treat cancerous tumors.

Called the New York Proton Center, it is a for-profit partnership of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Montefiore Health System and Mount Sinai Health System, managed by the ProHEALTH Company. It is the first such proton therapy facility in New York State. At full capacity, the center will be able to treat around 1,400 patients a year, including some 200 pediatric patients. There are four treatment rooms and every patient will have access to social workers and nutritionists that are in-house to support their treatment.
