KNOXVILLE, Tenn. & ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Provision Healthcare and Hamlin Retail Partners West, an affiliate of Boyd Development Corporation and Schrimsher Properties, announced a joint venture to develop and operate a proton therapy center as part of a medical campus in Hamlin, an 850-acre mixed-use town center development in southwest Orange County.
“The Provision Proton Center in Orlando will be our third center in the southeastern U.S., as Provision Healthcare continues to pursue our mission to make advanced cancer care and proton therapy more accessible by developing joint venture proton centers and cancer centers in the U.S., China, and around the world,” said Dr. Terry Douglass, Chairman and CEO of Provision Healthcare. Hamlin’s proton therapy treatment center will be a three-treatment room center and will utilize the latest proton systems technology of ProNova Solutions, LLC, which is an affiliate of Provision. It is projected that approximately 1,000 patients per year can be treated at the proton center. The parties plan to develop other medical office buildings and associated facilities on the campus to provide additional complementary cancer services at Hamlin.
“There are currently less than 25 proton therapy centers operating in the United States. The Hamlin proton center will be a great addition to the medical community and a real benefit to the residents of central Florida,” said Scott Boyd, President of Boyd Development. “We look forward to Provision bringing their state of the art technology, along with their Culture of Care, to our central Florida community.”
Hamlin is an 850-acre master-planned, mixed-use community that honors Florida’s historical roots in its landscape and building design as well as its focus on wellness and outdoor living. Hamlin will contain over 2 million square feet of retail, restaurants, entertainment uses, hotels, a medical campus, office space, plus over 2,000 residential units. Hamlin’s town center core is designed to be highly walkable and integrated into a network of trails and parks to ensure connection to the town center and the unique waterfront development fronting Lake Hancock. Today’s proton therapy center and associated medical campus press release follows a series of other significant anchor announcements at Hamlin which have included a 10-screen Cinepolis Luxury Theatre, a Publix Supermarket-anchored shopping center along with a Walmart-anchored power center.
