"Proton Center Set to Open in East Harlem" - Jonathan LaMantia
The state's first proton-therapy center will open today in East Harlem, more than a decade after some of the city's largest health care institutions began planning it. The New York Proton Center, which cost $300 million to build, will start patient consultations later this month, with cancer treatments expected to begin in July. The 140,000-square-foot facility on East 126th Street between Third and Second avenues is the result of a partnership between Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Montefiore Health System and Mount Sinai Health System. ProHealth Proton Management, an affiliate of Lake Success–based medical group ProHealth, will manage the site.
