Highlights:

  • Completed in late spring of 2018, the expansion unfolded over three phases and effectively doubled the size of the cancer center. 
  • The first floor now hosts 25 exam rooms, a new intake area, two nursing stations, three phlebotomy stations (to take blood), an on-site laboratory, and an elevator to take patients to infusion services. 
  • The second floor houses 24 spacious infusion bays, including private rooms with space for loved ones in addition to community areas. A new state-of-the-art conference room has also been added, serving two critical roles: as a public education forum and communication hub for the physicians and advanced practice providers.
