Glendale Adventist Medical Center Continues Treating Patients while Upgrading their Linear Accelerator
AVENTURA, Fla., July 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RAD Technology Medical Systems is pleased to announce their most recent project at Glendale Adventist Medical Center in Glendale, California. RAD Technology has provided Glendale Adventist Medical Center (GAMC), with their patented Temporary Radiotherapy Vault, or TRV. The TRV will be on site for about 150 days while GAMC renovates their department and upgrades their existing linear accelerator.
GAMC is brining one of the most advanced radiation therapy technologies yet developed for the treatment of cancer. The Varian TrueBeam Linear Accelerator, currently scheduled to begin service in Fall 2017, is able to destroy cancer cells with more precision and greater accuracy, and often in less time and with fewer treatments. This is the latest cancer-fighting technology available.
"We are very excited about the installation of the RAD TRV," said Dennis Quagliani, Director of Cancer Services. "It was important for us to have this temporary facility available while we work on upgrading the cancer center so we do not have to stop or hinder patient care. It will also eliminate the need to send our patients outside of the Glendale area for daily treatments that can extend up to 5-6 weeks. The project couldn't have been easier, as RAD Technology provided full turnkey services, handling everything from start to finish," explains Dennis Quagliani.
In collaboration with hospital administration, RAD Technology managed the permitting, site preparation, installation of the below grade patented foundation system and electrical service connections. Once those were in place, RAD Technology's project team coordinated the delivery of the eight (8) modules comprising the temporary cancer center, assembled the facility in under ten (10) days and managed the remaining site work to completion.
The TRV is a comprehensive solution that arrives on site and is typically ready to make Beam in 5-7 days. The TRV comes fully furnished with a pre-commissioned linear accelerator, reception area, waiting room, office space and restroom.
"Every project we work on is rewarding, knowing that we are facilitating our client's move to the latest technology in the fight against cancer," said Kenneth Wright, Director of TRV Services at RAD Technology. Managing the complete process for the client allows them to focus on being good healthcare providers while leaving the facility and equipment challenges to RAD Technology."
The TRV offers all the comforts of a permanent facility and is relocatable, allowing organizations to use the facility to support their upgrades at multiple locations. RAD Technology is pleased to be able to help GAMC continue treating patients while modernizing their department and upgrading to state-of-the-art cancer care technology.
