The new center will house all cancer sevices under one roof.

 

Lisa Dobey, the Executive Director of hte St. Charles Foundation, says the new facility will help them serve the growing number of cancer patients -- as our population ages.

 

"You know it's a beautiful building, but more important is what's insdie -- the services. The building is our best effort, after designing a center after talking with patients, to meet the needs of people in a caring and compassionate way."

 

Construction on the new cancer center will start immediately.

 

A wing of the hospital will be dedicated to Margaret Schwab Denton, in appreication to the Les Schwab family's donation of one million dollars to the project.
