Prologics Outpatient Radiation Therapy Centers

 

The development of a new radiation therapy center is a huge undertaking. In fact, the initial capitalization of a center with one or two linear accelerators averages $4 to $8 million. This capital is required to buy or lease the building, purchase equipment, build the vault(s), fund the tenant improvements, purchase furnishings, hire staff and fund the start-up phase of the venture until cash flows. We know how to make these ventures profitable by securing a referral base, running an efficient operation and ensuring payments from third-party payers.

 

The challenges to starting a center include meeting complex regulatory compliance laws, developing a deal structure that works for all parties, gaining access to capital, finding the right radiation oncologist, obtaining payer contracts, developing a competitive advantage, attracting and retaining experienced staff and operating the business so that it continues to attract patients.

 

Our development process is comprised of a number of steps. The first step is to conduct an analysis that determines the realistic financial feasibility of a center. If feasibility is determined, the next steps are to develop relationships with key customers, formulate a detailed business plan and source competitive capital. If a strategic plan is established, the next steps are to generate a letter of intent and definitive documentation, establish timelines for the project and assign a site manager to develop the project. This manager will implement the business plan, which includes the marketing, operations, reimbursement and financial strategies for the center.
