Proton therapy has been regarded the promising method for curing cancer. The proton therapy room plays an important role in the treatment procedure. With the rapidly spread of the proton therapy service, the treatment experience becomes a margin factor for improving treatment effect. In this paper, the service design theory was applied to guide the design of the proton therapy room. The prototype of proton therapy room was proposed. Based on our proposed design, the resource would be allocated more efficiently and the treatment experience would be improved in a large extent.
