CDH Proton Center Company Profile

23:08 EST 20th February 2019 | BioPortfolio

CDH Proton Center, A ProCure Center, Warrenville, Ill., is one of a handful of facilities in the country that offer proton therapy, an advanced form of radiation to treat cancer. The four-room, 60,000 sq. ft. Center, opened Oct. 19, 2010, is the first for Illinois and has the capacity to treat up to 1,500 patients a year. The precision of proton therapy spares healthy tissue and results in fewer short- and long-term side effects than treatment with standard X-ray radiation therapy. Proton therapy has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of a broad range of tumor types including head and neck, brain, central nervous system, prostate, lung, sarcomas, gastrointestinal and many pediatric cancers. It is especially effective for treating children and adults with anatomically complex tumors such as at the base of the skull and tumors along the spinal cord. The CDH Proton Center, A ProCure Center, is a collaboration between Central DuPage Hospital (CDH), Radiation Oncology Consultants (ROC) and ProCure Treatment Centers, Inc. ProCure was founded in 2005 in Bloomington, Ind., and is developing a network of proton therapy centers in cities across the United States. For more information, visit www.procure.com/il.
