Officials Celebrate Construction of Proton Therapy Center


Knoxville News Sentinel— After years of dreaming of bringing proton therapy treatment for cancer to East Tennessee, local businessman Terry Douglass and his team at Provision Health Alliance celebrated Friday the start of construction on a $119 million facility in Dowell Springs. Dozens of elected and community leaders gathered to mark the occasion, which Douglass said was a tribute to all involved. “It’s not about me,” Douglass said. “It’s really about taking the gifts and the resources we’ve been given, including the team that we’ve got which is fantastic and putting something together that we can share with the community, particularly those who are in the most vulnerable position of their life, and hopefully provide them with some physical healing and spiritual healing along the way. And in doing that all you can be is thankful and blessed.” Read more here.
