A cancer treatment center specializing in proton therapy, an increasingly popular treatment, is set to open in the summer of 2018.
Provision Healthcare, a clinical provider and developer of cancer treatments, will open a Provision CARES Cancer Center on Carothers Parkway, across from Williamson Medical Center, said Dr. Terry Douglass, Ph.D., the executive chair of Provision.
