Comprehensive Cancer Center Expansion Opening
Our newly expanded Comprehensive Cancer Center is 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.
From the calming courtyard nestled in the center of the upper floors to family amenities like Serenity Rooms and laundry facilities, everything about the new Comprehensive Cancer Center hospital is focused on the care and comfort of patients and their families.
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).

Fast Access Combined with Advanced Cancer Care
At most medical centers, it can take weeks to see each of the physicians who will have a role in the patient's care. Our team of cancer experts has developed a system to streamline the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of cancer patients by specialized teams of surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists as well as allied health care professionals.
As one of only 41 institutions in the United States to be NCI-designated as a comprehensive cancer center, we have many accreditations, including:
