Pyrexar Celebrates four years as a medical device manufacturer

It has been four years since we acquired the hyperthermia division from BSD Medical and started Pyrexar Medical.  In addition to getting the technology rights to this life-changing technology; we also acquired a group of great, hardworking people. Pyrexar may be only celebrating year four, but we do this sitting atop four decades of drive, innovation and the desire to give those that are battling cancer, a greater chance at disease-free survival.

We are looking toward achieving great strides in this next year. With that, we have many people to thank, and that includes you.  Thank you to all of our supporters, partners, researchers, physicians, physicists, radiation therapists, nurses and administrative staff around the world. To those that continue to believe in the bright future of hyperthermia, and to those who demand the best outcomes for their patients.

Thank you.

Ascension is the largest Catholic health system in the world and the largest non-profit health system in the United States with facilities in 23 states and the District of Columbia.
