FORT MYERS - Fort Myers-based Radiation Therapy Services Inc. (RTSI) an operator of radiation therapy centers, announced a deal to acquire OnCure Holdings Inc. out of bankruptcy for $125 million, according to a news release.

“We are pleased to have entered into an agreement with OnCure to acquire the business,” says Dr. Daniel Dosoretz, president and CEO of Radiation Therapy Services, in the release. “The addition of OnCure, including its partnerships with teams of many of the most highly respected physicians in the industry, will broaden and deepen our ability to provide world-class treatment to patients and offer our integrated cancer care model in key markets across the United States.”
