On December 9, 2013, patients will begin moving into the region’s first dedicated cancer hospital. The six-story addition to the existing outpatient cancer center increases the number of acute care oncology inpatient beds to from 113 to 148 and includes an oncology inpatient intensive care unit.
Totaling more than 530,000 square feet, the cancer hospital is the largest cancer facility in the state and consolidates both outpatient and inpatient services into a single location. All inpatient rooms are private and filled with natural light, and include recliners and sleeper sofas to accommodate family members.
The Comprehensive Cancer Center is ranked the #1 cancer hospital in the state and #12 in the country by U.S. News and World Report (July 2013).
