Planning

The University Medical Centre Groningen (UMCG) is the first hospital in the Netherlands with a proton facility, the UMC Groningen Proton Therapy Centre (UMC GPTC for short).

As of January 2018 patients are able to receive proton treatment in Groningen.

Because the UMC GPTC is constructed on UMCG grounds, it allows patient care for this facility to be fully integrated within the multidisciplinary care programmes of the UMC Groningen Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
