“Celebrate & Graduate” Patient Luncheon

Every Wednesday from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. our Patient Experience department will host a luncheon for all current patients, spouses and caregivers. This is a great opportunity to connect and converse with other patients on treatment.

Tour the Center

Provision CARES Proton Therapy offers monthly tours that take attendees behind the scenes of what we do every day. Because this tour includes viewing the cyclotron and other equipment that helps us deliver protons to patients, tours are provided on the weekends when treatments are not taking place.

We believe awareness of proton therapy is a benefit to everyone, as it is one of the most advanced cancer treatment options in the world. In order to be an advocate for your own health or for those you love, you must be able to make informed decisions about all treatment options and their possible side effects.

Please call 865-862-1600 to learn when the next available tour will take place.
