First Coast Oncology to Add $30 Million Proton Therapy Center

Jacksonville Business Journal by Ashley Gurbal Kritzer, Reporter

JACKSONVILLE — First Coast Oncology PA is moving forward with its plans to add a $30 million proton therapy center to its practice.

The practice has awarded a $5 million contract to Sauer Inc. of Jacksonville for the construction of an 8,500-square-foot concrete structure that contains the proton accelerator. The unit, which First Coast Oncology will buy from Littleton, Mass.-based Mevion Medical Systems, is much smaller than the $125 million unit at the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute at Shands Jacksonville.

First Coast Oncology Medical Director Dr. Scot Ackerman said there’s a demand for more proton therapy.
