Cancer + Proton Therapy Center
The proton therapy center at Kettering Medical Center is part of a new multidisciplinary cancer center. In addition to proton therapy, the new Comprehensive Cancer Center will include gamma knife, radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging and medical oncology. The proton center building is one of several buildings planned on a site immediately adjacent to the existing hospital. In addition to the proton center, our team designed a pedestrian bridge over the roadway connecting the center to the existing hospital accommodating shared diagnostic and ancillary services. The pedestrian bridge also simplifies circulation across the campus, providing access to parking, and protecting patient and staff. The Kettering Medical Center (KMC) is a faith-based, nonprofit hospital located in Kettering, Ohio, United States. Founded in 1964, it is the focus hospital in the Kettering Health Network with 508 beds and is directly affiliated with the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The Boonshoft School of Medicine is an affiliated university situated on KMC’s campus. In 2009, 2010, and 2011, Thomson Reuters rated the Kettering Health Network as one of the top 10 hospital networks for clinical excellence in the United States.
