Part of the Proton Therapy Gantry

Atlantic Logistics and Proton Therapy (UPDATED)

Unless one serves in the military or as a first responder, it's uncommon to say, "We're helping to save lives," at the workplace. Yet our team recently facilitated a heavy haul move that we're really proud of.

The University of Kansas Health System has been working to bring Proton Therapy to The Sunflower State, and this move was another step in bringing that to reality.

The near 1,100 mile journey from the Houston to Kansas City was recently completed, bringng this 110 ton gantry to its new home near the Richard and Annette Bloch Radiation Oncology Pavilion.

"I always love the opportunity to help people change their lives," said Atlantic Logistics CEO Rob Hooper, "and I can't think of a larger life changing dynamic, than life saving medical treatments such as proton therapy." 

Stay tuned as Sean, Felecia, and team will be assisting more moves like this in the future.
