Modular, Green Radiotherapy Facility

Swedish Cancer Institute (SCI) has embarked on a bold approach to rapidly restore community-based radiotherapy cancer treatment in the Ballard community utilizing state-of-the-art building technology that is swift and green.

The patented radiotherapy treatment vault and clinic system offered by RAD Technology Medical Systems (RAD) and fabricated as modular units off-site by Whitley Manufacturing, will enable SCI to cut traditional building schedules in half while constructing a facility in conformance with the U.S. Green Building Council\'s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

Once completed, the SCI Radiation Treatment Center on the Ballard campus will be home to the first TomoTherapy Hi-Art radiation treatment system in the Seattle metropolitan area.

"Hospital facilities are perhaps one of the most difficult types of structures to make compliant with LEED criteria," said RAD President John J. Lefkus III. "Maintaining health and equipment environmental standards can be in conflict with renewable and lean strategies. RAD has unique construction techniques that benefit projects through the extensive use of renewable construction materials and employs energy-efficient mechanical systems."

The nearly 4,000 SFT facility will combine a specialized therapy room or "vault" to house the TomoTherapy treatment system along with patient and clinical staff acccomodations.

"With assistance from RAD, we found a way to blen our need for leading-edge technology, accelerated project delivery and our commitment to the community and environment in one package," said Jim Yates, Administrative Director of SCI.

The new facility is currently erected with most work expected to be completed by the end of the year and is scheduled to treat its first patient at the end of January 2011.
