Officials with University of Arizona Cancer Center at St. Joseph’s Hospital held a ceremonial ribbon-cutting on Aug. 13 to mark the opening of the new facility at the downtown Phoenix Biomedical Campus.
The clinic represents an expansion of the Tucson operations of the UA Cancer Center, the lone National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center headquartered in Arizona and one of 41 in the nation.
The new five-story, 220,000-square-foot facility will provide comprehensive outpatient cancer care for a wide spectrum of malignant diseases. The center features 70 exam rooms, 44 infusion chairs, three endoscopy rooms, and rooms for minor procedures and clinical research. Inpatient care and select services, including surgery, will continue to be provided at St. Joseph’s main campus just a few blocks away.
The Cancer Center opens to patients on Aug. 24.
