Siemens joins particle therapy center project

Siemens Healthcare of Erlangen, Germany, will participate in creating and operating the first particle therapy center in northern Germany.

The University Clinic of Schleswig-Holstein commissioned Siemens, Bilfinger Berger, and HSG Technischer Service to construct and run the facility.

The project will cost an estimated 250 million euros ($392.5 million U.S.), making it the largest public-private partnership project ever launched in the German healthcare sector.

The center is scheduled to open for cancer therapy in 2012, and will serve northern Germany and the southern Scandinavian region. Its three treatment rooms will be capable of treating approximately 3,000 patients annually.
