The 18 thousand square foot addition will allow the hospital to treat cancer patients in one location.

 

Allison McCormick, the Director of the Cancer Center, says these plans have been in the works for five years. 

 

"What we're trying to do is really optimize the patient experience.  We have had patients in our past who have had to travel five blocks for chemotherapy if they're also receiving radiation therapy.  If you think of a patient weakened with treatment or pershap they're older, that commute is a challenge.  Our goal is to have all of our services under one roof."

 

The hospital is in the middle of a silent campaign to raise five million dollars of the project's 13 million dollar price tag.

 

The new cancer center is slated to be done by the summer of 2014.
