Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium, 1 June, 2022 – IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A., EURONEXT), the world leader in particle accelerator technology and the world’s leading provider of proton therapy solutions for the treatment of cancer, today announces a contract with Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute of Boca Raton Regional Hospital, part of Baptist Health South Florida, for the installation of its Proteus®ONE1 compact proton therapy system. This project represents the second proton therapy center for Baptist Health Cancer Care, which is comprised of Miami Cancer Institute and Lynn Cancer Institute, with the first having been installed at Miami Cancer Institute as South Florida’s first proton therapy center.

The contract includes a multi-year operation and maintenance agreement, and it is expected that patients will start being treated in 2024. The center will be located at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital and it will be equipped with IBA’s Proteus®ONE solution, including Pencil Beam Scanning (PBS), Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) and Hand Pendant with contextual menus for easy patient positioning.

Olivier Legrain, Chief Executive Officer of IBA, commented: “This new contract continues to reinforce our leading position in the US market, marking our 20th proton therapy system in the region to date. We are pleased to once again be partnering with Baptist Health’s Cancer Care network to provide cancer patients with access to the most advanced radiotherapy technology. After working with Miami Cancer Institute, which has treated more than 1,000 patients to date, we look forward to supporting Lynn Cancer Institute in providing world-class cancer care.”

Dr. Michael Kasper, Medical Director of Radiation Oncology at Lynn Cancer Institute added: “At Lynn Cancer Institute, our goal is to provide comprehensive and the most innovative cancer care to our patients. Partnering with the leader in proton therapy equipment manufacturing IBA was therefore the logical choice for us. We are excited at the prospect of providing our patients with this cutting-edge treatment.”
