The Precision Radiotherapy Center, which provides radiotherapy and radiosurgery treatment, will more than double in size to 16,000 square feet.

The West Chester expansion will increase the number of patients treated for cancer, benign tumors and other abnormalities to 75 people per day from 35.

The center, which opened in 2003, is operated by the Mayfield Clinic and UC Health’s Department of Radiation Oncology.

Together, Precision Radiotherapy and University Pointe are supported by eight radiation oncologists and eight medical oncologists.

Acquisition of a new-generation linear accelerator is included in the expansion. The TrueBeam system will enable image-guided brain and body radiosurgery and radiotherapy.
