Some news from India, it looks like expansion into new sites is a possibility (from Indiatimes):

>>Corporate healthcare pioneer Apollo Hospitals
has invested Rs 75 crore on setting up a speciality cancer hospital in the heart of the city. The new Apollo Speciality Cancer Hospital (ASCH) houses a Rs 35 crore cyberknife robotic radio surgery system, which is designed to treat tumours anywhere in the body with sub-millimetre accuracy.

With the incidence of cancer on the rise, ASCH is one of the few hospitals in India equipped to provide 360-degree cancer care, Apollo Hospitals Group executive chairman Dr Prathap C Reddy told reporters here on Friday, after unveiling the CyberKnife® at the ASCH.


Apollo proposes to expand this treatment option in couple of other cities such as Hyderabad and Delhi.
