The Roberts Proton Therapy Center, part of the Abramson Cancer Center at Perelman, will be a first-of-its-kind proton therapy center for the treatment of cancer. The Roberts Proton Therapy Center will be the largest proton therapy center in the world and one of only six such centers in the country. It will also be the world’s most comprehensive proton therapy center, offering the unique ability to fully integrate conventional radiation treatment with proton radiation, which more accurately targets tumors and leaves surrounding, healthy tissue unaffected.
It is projected that the Center will treat 3,000 patients a year, including several hundred children, continuing the historically close relationship between UPHS and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
