The therapy center, designed by RLF Inc. is three stories and 15,000 square feet, and will hold a Mevion S250 superconducting synchrocyclotron proton accelerator — the most advanced radiation technology for treating brain, spine, prostate, lung, breast, head, neck and pediatric cancers, according to Orlando Health. It’s located at 1400 S. Orange Ave. in Orlando.
