Provision CARES Proton Therapy Nashville announces the opening of a new advanced proton therapy center and comprehensive cancer center in Franklin, TN. Provision CARES Proton Therapy Nashville is the newest development in the expansion of the Provision CARES Cancer Network, featuring proton therapy.
Provision Healthcare, an industry leading innovator in comprehensive, collaborative cancer solutions, is pleased to announce successfully treating the first patients on Provision’s newly developed ProNova SC360 proton therapy system at the Provision CARES Cancer Center in Knoxville, Tennessee.
