Michigan healthcare systems form proton beam partnership

A consortium of Michigan healthcare systems has created a joint venture to bring proton beam therapy cancer treatment to area patients.

Six of the state’s largest systems will participate in the collaborative, including the state’s two National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers. The group also will contribute to the creation of a $160 million cancer treatment center.

The six participating healthcare systems are:

  • Ascension Health (Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute)
  • Henry Ford Health System
  • Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Center
  • McLaren Health Care (the Great Lakes Cancer Institute-McLaren Campus)
  • Trinity Health (St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, Ann Arbor)
  • University of Michigan Health System
