Only four of the six CON applications filed with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health earlier this month for radiation therapy services are still pending. 

This week, DPH rejected the New England Radiosurgery application for certain technical deficiencies, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital withdrew its application for a service in Dartmouth, MA. 

In addition to the four remaining applications for new services, three expansion applications are pending as well (including one filed just last week).
