Dash Door & Glass | Contract Door & Hardware Group furnished a contract door and hardware package for the construction of the Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health South Florida. The Miami Cancer Institute introduced the first proton therapy cancer treatment option to South Florida.
Dash Door & Glass worked with general contractor Gilbane to build the new Proton Therapy Facility on the larger medical campus of the Miami Cancer Institute. This type of therapy is still relatively new, and has only been implemented at a smattering of facilities around the country.
Per Gilbane’s press release:
The highly anticipated Proteus®PLUS three-gantry room configuration includes next generation Pencil Beam Scanning capability, which will be the only one of its kind in the region. The 72,350 SF state-of-the-art cancer center includes support spaces for treatment and research, and it is only one of a handful of proton therapy centers in the country and the first in South Florida. It also includes three rotational gantry treatment rooms, related PTEV support service spaces, clinical spaces and additional tenant improvements.
The Miami Cancer Institute has since been joined by the South Florida Proton Therapy Institute at the Delray Medical Center in offering proton therapy to the region. Contract Door & Hardware Group, along with Automatic Door Group, contributed to the Delray project.
Imagery of the campus comes from the architect, Nelson.
