Hampton University opens Proton Therapy Institute
- October 28, 2010
Hampton University has officially opened its $225 million Proton Therapy Institute.
Proton therapy targets and kills tumors with millimeter accuracy, while sparing surrounding healthy tissue, Hampton officials said.
The institute is expected to treat 2,000 patients annually with cancer, breast, brain, lung, ocular and pediatric cancers.
The facility began seeing its first patients in August.
