A cancer hospital in Singapore announced it was bringing proton therapy to Southeast Asia.

The National Cancer Center Singapore said Thursday it had plans to build a $100 million proton therapy center in the basement of a new medical campus. Construction on the center would start in 2014, and likely wrap up three years later, the center said.

"This is a major milestone for Singapore," the center's director, Soo Khee Chee, said in a statement.
