Petrone Associates, a leader in the delivery and management of comprehensive consulting for medical physics and its sub-fields, has announced that it will now be serving the needs of customers of Medical Physics of New Jersey (MPNJ).
MPNJ is a provider of clinical linear accelerator commissioning, acceptance testing, data modeling, and related services in the northeastern U.S. Founded in the early 1980s, MPNJ has grown steadily since it incorporated in 1999, and its deal with Petrone Associates marks the latest in its decades-long evolution.
“For many years we have turned to Petrone Associates because of their comprehensive offerings in all fields of medical physics," said MPNJ owner Ken Kopecky, in a statement. "In turn, Petrone has called on us when they had a need for specialized assistance in our focused field of expertise.” He continued, “Over time, it became apparent that Petrone could manage the administrative aspects of even the most complicated health system contracts, allowing our physicists to concentrate on their true talents, namely, the efficient collection and modeling of radiation data from high-energy treatment machines.”

For existing Petrone Associates clients, the deal means they will now have MPNJ’s robust data services in the areas of commissioning, installing, and utilizing high-energy treatment systems.
“We have always turned to Ken and his team for their technical expertise and excellent service," said Thomas Petrone, Petrone Associates CEO. "In combination with our infrastructure, those strengths have enabled us to collaborate on bigger and bigger projects. Together we’ve built an impressive track record of turning around new installations and maintaining existing facilities.”
For MPNJ clients, the deal gives them access to Petrone’s imaging division, which will augment the traditional service basket of MPNJ. It also means that MPNJ expertise can be applied to newer high-energy technologies from manufacturers such as Varian and Elekta, including modalities such as proton therapy, with which Petrone has significant experience.
Both sets of clients will now be served through Petrone Associates’ management and support systems, which have been developed and refined over decades to provide the highest quality customer service. These systems, and the professionals who manage them, enable technical staff to focus fully on delivering customized, comprehensive medical physics without shouldering non-physics-related distractions.
