In 2012, Kettering Health Network (KHN) contracted with the Center for Urban & Public Affairs (CUPA) to conduct the economic impact analysis of the construction of a new Proton therapy facility, the new employment at this facility, and patient hospitality (hotel and restaurant) impacts resulting from the six-week Proton therapy treatment. For this study, CUPA used IMPLAN, a tool for economic impact assessment to estimate the direct, indirect, and induced impacts of the $84 million1 Proton facility construction project and operations on the regional economy (Montgomery, Greene, Preble and Miami counties).
