Construction has been underway at the Scott Hamilton Proton Therapy Center, which will deliver state-of-the-art cancer treatment to patients in Middle Tennessee and beyond.

The two-story building includes three treatment rooms along with clinical and administrative office space. It is located on Carothers Parkway, which is a growing and developing healthcare hub in Franklin, Tennessee. The $99.6 million project is scheduled to treat the first patient in mid-2018. It is spearheaded by Provision Healthcare, a Knoxville-based developer of proton centers and comprehensive cancer centers with a focus on making proton therapy a clinical reality. The center will utilize Provision Healthcare’s ProNova SC360 proton system. The first ProNova SC360 system will treat the first patient at the Provision Center for Proton Therapy in Knoxville, Tennessee later this year.

Olympic figure skater and gold medalist, Scott Hamilton, is a resident of Franklin, a cancer survivor and patient advocate. He serves as a Provision board member and through his Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation funds cancer research and provides support and educational services for cancer patients and their families. “Since meeting Provision founder Terry Douglass, it has been my dream to bring proton therapy to my hometown and to cancer patients in Middle Tennessee and around the globe,” said Hamilton. “It’s thrilling to see construction as this vision becomes reality.”

“Our mission is to make proton therapy a clinical reality and to make this therapy more accessible to more patients around the world,” said Terry Douglass, Executive Chairman of Provision Healthcare. “We are blessed to be able to provide this cancer treatment to all patients who need it.”

With the addition of the Scott Hamilton Proton Therapy Center in Franklin, this will be the second proton therapy centered developed by the Provision team. The Provision Center for Proton Therapy in Knoxville, Tennessee opened in January 2014.
