Radiation Capacity Study

Radiation Therapy Facility Capacity Study, 2012

During the regular session of 2012, the Minnesota legislature passed a law requiring the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to perform a study of radiation therapy facilities in Minnesota and report findings to the legislature in early 2013 (Minnesota Session Laws 2012, Chapter 247, Section 14).

This study must examine the following:

  • Current treatment capacity of the existing radiation therapy facilities within the state;
  • The present need for radiation therapy services based on population demographics and new cancer cases; and
  • The projected need in the next ten years for radiation therapy services and whether the current facilities and equipment can sustain this projected need.
