Case Study

CincinnatiChildren’s Liberty Campus is a is a full-service hospital with 42 inpatient beds, a full complement of support services, including new cancer services that opened in 2016. Located at the Liberty Campus, the Proton Therapy Center is one of the most advanced proton research and cancer treatment centers in the world.

Despite the convenience of its location to many of our patients and families, there was a general hesitance from many to schedule services at the new, state-of-the-art facility, instead defaulting to the comforts of familiarity atChildren’s main campus in Cincinnati.
