Emory Proton Therapy Center

When it opens in late 2018, the Emory Proton Therapy Center will be the first center of its kind in Georgia and one of only a few in the southeast to offer patients access to this leading-edge type of radiation therapy.

The Emory Proton Therapy Center combines the world's most advanced radiation technologies and treatments for patients with specific cancers and the expertise of renowned specialists from Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.

These physicians have the expertise and experience to determine the appropriate use of this advanced technology as part of a complete treatment plan. Our physicians and researchers continue to be at the forefront of cancer research and discovery, transforming the way each patient's unique cancer is detected, diagnosed, treated and survived.

The Emory Proton Therapy Center is located within walking distance of Emory University Hospital Midtown, one of four Emory locations offering the full continuum of cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship services in Atlanta metropolitan area.

To facilitate patients arriving from around the corner or from across the nation, the Emory Proton Therapy Center is 10 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. It is served by mass transit and is just minutes from I-75/85. There is convenient covered parking attached to the building.

Request an Appointment

Referring physicians and patients with questions about proton therapy and its appropriateness for their individual cancers can schedule a consultation with a Winship radiation oncology expert by calling (404) 778-3473.

Employment Opportunities

Once opened, the Emory Proton Therapy Center will be staffed by physicians and other highly skilled proton therapy professionals from Winship Cancer Institute and Emory Healthcare.
