University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center: Dallas Proton Treatment Center


One of the most advance treatments in radiation technology currently available, proton therapy involves the use of a controlled beam of protons to target tumors with precision unavailable in other radiation therapies. There are currently only nine such facilities in the United States. The second such facility to be built in the state, the center will include four treatment vaults and additional research facilities. A component of the University of Texas System, UT Southwestern has grown from a small war time medical college (1943) into a “multifaceted academic institution nationally recognized for its excellence in educating physicians, biomedical scientists, and healthcare personnel.”

The scope of this project includes telecommunications cabling systems plus infrastructure, audiovisual systems with infrastructure, LAN/PBX/Wi-Fi Electronics, Intercom/Video Surveillance and Access Control. Anticipated completion for the project is 2015.
