5 Questions with Ryan Van Ort

5 Questions with Ryan Van Ort

Meet Ryan, our evening concierge. Ryan just graduated from the University of Washington and wanted to interact with patients before he went on to Med School. Read our 5 Questions with Ryan.

What’s the most exciting thing about proton therapy, in your opinion?

To me, the most exciting part about proton therapy is the ability to treat cancer without causing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.

What’s the most fun you’ve had at the center?

I can’t think of just one time where I’ve had the most fun, I honestly have fun at the center every day! Seeing patients every day and building the relationships that we build with them is always fun.

What do you like to do for fun? What are your hobbies?

I like to do a lot of outdoor activities. Playing soccer and hiking are both things I like to do year round. During summer weekends I’m typically out on the water doing some sort of watersport, and during the winter I like to snowboard.

Can  you share a favorite vacation destination with us?

One of my favorite vacation destinations are the San Juan Islands! They’re not far from Seattle and during the summer, when the weather is nice, they are one of the best spots to unwind. I love being able to take a step back from the fast pace of Seattle and visit islands that are only accessible by boat or plane.

Tell us a good joke!

What did one ocean say to the other? Nothing, they just waved!
