The Brandon site will house cancer care specialists, physician-scientists, and oncology nurses, for tending to various cancer types.

With the addition of this centre and the upcoming Radiation Oncology Center at the Brandon location, residents will no longer require to go to the main TGH campus for treatments.

Additionally, TGH is preparing to build a Proton Therapy Center in collaboration with the Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS).

TGH Cancer Institute director Dr. Eduardo M. Sotomayor said: “Since opening the Brandon location last fall, the number of patients the Infusion Center has treated in our Brandon location has exceeded expectations and we hope our strategic position near the intersection of two major highways will help in removing geographical barriers and allow us to continue to treat more patients who need it.”
