John Hopkins Medicine – Sibley Memorial Hospital Proton Center

Description
Convergent Technologies Design Group, Inc.
(CTDG) provided telecommunications cabling
systems with associated supporting
infrastructure for voice/data/RF video outlets,
audiovisual system electronics with associated
supporting infrastructure design services, LAN/
PBX/Wi-Fi electronics, intercom/video surveillance
(CCTV), and access control systems for the Sibley
Memorial Hospital Sibley Proton Center located
in Washington, DC. Sibley’s proton center will begin
treating patients in 2019. The center is being
uniquely developed to incorporate both state-of-the-
art clinical technology and the capability to
conduct advanced translational research. A
breakthrough cancer treatment, proton therapy
offers both greater effectiveness and less toxicity
than conventional radiation therapy.
Proton therapy is far from standard. It is available
at only 23 sites in the United States and ten sites
in other countries; due to limited availability, it
has been reserved for patients who have cancers
that are difficult to reach, such as tumors in
delicate areas of the eye, or that are located near
vital organs which must be protected. Proton
therapy is particularly valuable for children whose
brains and organs are still developing. Today,
proton therapy can only be offered to children
with greatest need such as to young cancer
patients with brain and spine tumors, to avoid
blindness, hearing loss, cognitive deficits, and
lifelong need for hormone replacement.
The proton center will have a total of four
treatment rooms–two for adults, one for children
and one for research. Efforts will be dedicated to
the advancement of proton therapy clinical care,
research and education, bringing the benefits of
this sophisticated, life-changing technology to
patients and families in the Washington, D.C.
region, including those from underserved areas.
