The UF Health Proton Therapy Institute recently reached a major milestone in the expansion of its cancer treatment capabilities. The largest piece of the new, single-room proton therapy system was lifted and lowered into the building addition at the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute Monday, Nov. 19.
