CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Clinic announced plans today for a $276 million structure that will house all the hospital's cancer programs.
The 377,000-square-foot, seven-story building will be north of Carnegie Avenue between E. 102nd and E. 105th Streets.
“The new Cleveland Clinic cancer building will allow us to centralize the cancer care we provide, creating a seamless, personalized experience for patients from throughout the region, nation and world who turn to Cleveland Clinic in their time of need,” said Brian J. Bolwell, M.D., Chairman, Cleveland Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Institute .
“Whether treated at our main campus or at one of our centers throughout the region, patients will benefit from this more integrated, collaborative approach, which is essential in making progress against cancer.”
The facility will have 126 exam rooms, 98 private and semi-private chemo infusion rooms and a spiritual support center.
Groundbreaking will take place Sept. 26 and the center is expected to be completed in early 2017.
