Univeristy of Michigan Medical Center Installs Healing Portals™

RAD Technology Medical Systems' Innovative Artwork for Radiotherapy Doors

AVENTURA, Fla., November 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — RAD Technology Medical Systems announced today that they have installed Healing Portals™ at the University of Michigan Cancer Center in Ann Arbor, after installing four at UCSD.  The University of Michigan Cancer Center first worked with RAD in 2013 when they installed a RAD PRO vault and clinic next to their existing facility to treat patients during the upgrading of the equipment in their existing vaults.

“The RAD PRO Vault and clinic has been a wonderful addition to our facility,” said Kathy Lash, Director of Operations at the University of Michigan for Radiation Oncology. Working with RAD on the facility was one of the most fulfilling projects I’ve ever been involved with, so I jumped at the chance to work with them again and have a Healing Portal™ installed. I’m really looking forward to hearing the patients’ feedback,” Lash added.

Healing Portals™ are artwork for vault doors. Photographic images are installed, turning the radiotherapy treatment room doors into something beautiful or interesting to look at. RAD has worked constructing radiotherapy vaults for years and always thought something needed to be done to the large cumbersome vault doors.  This led to the creation of Healing Portals™.

The first Healing Portals™ were installed at the University of California San Diego.  Two Healing Portals™ were installed in the RAD PRO vault that is located at the Moores Cancer Center and the other two were installed in the radiotherapy suite located across the street.

“Our patients love the new Healing Portals™,” said Mary Collins, Clinical Operations Manager at UCSD Moores Cancer Center. “We’ve gotten lots of positive feedback. Many patients have commented that the Healing Portals™ make entering the treatment room less intimidating.”

The goal of Healing Portals™ is to provide a distraction for the patients while promoting calmness, relaxation and a healing environment. Healing Portals™ are not only available to cancer centers with a RAD PRO Vault or TRV, but also to any cancer center who wishes to transform their vault doors.
