There are two phrases we love to hear around RBS.
The first is,
“I made a mistake.”
I am a big believer in personal accountability, so much so that we celebrate when a team member says, “Oops, I messed up.” That means that we can skip over the finger-pointing and get right to fixing the problem. This time, I am the one admitting to a mistake.
Last month, I shared that RBS has partnered with Apollo Healthcare, a new startup company that is bringing value to the proton industry. In my article, I stated that founders Ben Frank and Chris Gonzalez were former executives at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Proton Center.
I was mistaken. I apologize for the confusion and would like to set the record straight.
Ben was most recently the President of Provision Proton Therapy in Nashville. Prior to that, he served in multiple positions with Provision. Ben worked at
M.D. Anderson Cancer Center’s Division of Radiation Oncology as the Administrative Director of Radiation Oncology Operations and multiple other positions at M.D. Anderson. Ben was mentored by Dr. Stephen Hahn, Chairman of Radiation Oncology at the time. Dr. Hahn now serves as the Commissioner of the FDA.
Chris served as the Manager of Patient Services at Provision CARES Nashville. Prior to that, he was the Clinical Program Manager at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Proton Therapy Center. Chris is a Medical Dosimetrist CMD who worked at Texas Oncology under Dr. Vivek Kavadi, Medical Director, and also at the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute under Dr. Nancy Mendhenall, Medical Director.
Regardless of pedigree, these guys know how to get the job done. Apollo is already working with two proton centers and helping patients on a daily basis.
My other favorite phrase is,
“Well done, Team Member!” I think you’ll agree with me that our VP of Marketing and Business Development, Denise Gerlach, really exemplifies our value of giving back to our community and serving others. Read more about her latest project below.
Finally, speaking of giving back, we have an important update on this year’s 5K run. I hope you’ll join us for our first virtual race as we raise funds to help cancer patients who were affected by COVID-19.
Thank you for all that you do to help cancer patients, as well as others in need.
