Providence Health & Services, a network of hospitals and health services based in Alaska, Washington, Montana, Oregon and California, has chosen RayStation as its primary treatment planning system in four additional sites within Oregon and Montana. With the new order, all Providence sites in Oregon and Montana will become RayStation centers.
The additional sites are located in Missoula, Montana, and the Portland metropolitan region. Three other Providence hospitals in Oregon and California are already RayStation customers, bringing the Providence system total to seven RayStation centers.
RayStation was chosen following an evaluation of leading treatment planning systems on the market. Key factors in the decision included the system’s high efficiency and cutting-edge functionality such as multi-criteria optimization, adaptive planning, dose tracking and fallback planning. In addition to these, the purchase comprises core features and deformable registration.
Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “Providence Health & Services has an ambition to bring the highest standards of care to as many patients as possible across the areas it serves. The Group depends on RaySearch to deliver outstanding clinical efficiency, high speed and adaptive treatment workflows, ensuring the best possible treatment for its many patients. We are proud to expand our support as Providence brings the benefits of RayStation to more centers.”
Providence Health & Services is a not-for-profit Catholic network of hospitals, care centers, health plans, physicians, clinics and affiliated services guided by a Mission of caring that the Sisters of Providence began in the West nearly 160 years ago.
