GK Financing, a subsidiary of American Shared Hospital Services (ASHS), has extended its alliance with the community-based health system Methodist Hospital in Merrillville, Indiana, US, by another eight years.
The new agreement, lasting until 2037, involves upgrading the hospital’s current Gamma Knife Perfexion system to Gamma Knife Esprit, Elekta‘s radiosurgery system.
Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a non-invasive technique that targets intracranial tumours with minimal impact on healthy tissue.
This upgrade is expected to offer enhanced clinical features, including frameless and frame-based workflows, advanced on-board CT imaging, and remote treatment planning capabilities.
ASHS CEO Peter Gaccione and GK Financing (GKF) president said: “Methodist Hospital has provided Gamma Knife radiosurgery for 20 years of which GKF and Methodist Hospital have been clinical partners since 2019 and we have seen their Gamma Knife programme grow and expand over that time.
“GKF is extremely proud to be part of supporting the Neurosurgeons and Radiation Oncology teams as they upgrade to the latest Gamma Knife Esprit which will allow them to offer greater clinical treatments to patients.
