The Connecticut Office of Health Strategy (OHS) will hold an online public hearing on the Certificate Of Need application of Danbury Proton LLC on April 1, 2021. The hearing for the new state-of-art proton therapy cancer treatment center will begin at 10 am via online Zoom conference call.
The Danbury Proton project will create over 100 construction jobs during a two-year period. When operational in 2023, Danbury Proton will employ over 30 full-time equivalent employees including radiation oncologists, medical physicists, radiation therapists, medical support and administrative staff. Located at 85 Wooster Heights near Route 7, I-84, Danbury Municipal Airport and Danbury Hospital, the new treatment center will serve patients from across the northeast, who will benefit from convenient and affordable proton therapy.
Connecticut’s Certificate of Need regulatory program requires health care providers to obtain State approval prior to making major changes in the healthcare landscape such as mergers, substantial capital investments in new equipment or facilities, changing access to services, discontinuing a medical service, or introducing a new technology like proton therapy.
