Banner MD Andersen Cancer Center
Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center in Gilbert needed to expand its radiation oncology program, bringing new treatment expertise to patients at Banner Boswell Medical Center in Sun City under a greatly accelerated schedule.
The RAD Solution
The facts about the new cancer center delineate exactly how unique RAD's patented modular building solution is. The new facility is 5,214 total square feet and it can be relocated, expanded or left permanently. The building modules arrived on May 11, 2015 and Banner took occupancy on June 29th and the accelerator installation began. Therefore, the entire facility was assembled and made ready in 49 days. The facility consists of 16 separate building modules and parts of the facility were fabricated in Quebec, Indiana, and Arizona. The therapy room is surrounded by over two million pounds of mass to shield the patients, public and clinicians. The shielding is designed to protect radiation energy levels at 180 times that of a normal diagnostic x-ray. The building includes shielded spaces for a linear accelerator and a CT SIM.
