Cancer Center work reroutes access

As the work on the expanded Cancer Center gets under way, the hallway between MRI and Radiology was closed effective Sept. 7 for at least six months.

Employees and hospital visitors needing to access the Heart Center, Emergency Department and Women and Children’s areas (including the gift shop) from the ancillary building main entrance lobby, will use the outer perimeter hallway near the west side of the building toward the north end of the main lobby.

Employees and unescorted visitors are not permitted to walk through the Radiology Department to get to or from the main building entrance. The Cancer Center's 70,000-square-foot expansion is expected to be completed in spring 2012.

Cancer Center construction beginning

Work on the Cancer Center expansion is underway. Construction equipment moved in recently to prepare the construction site, which extends over the existing parking area adjacent to the Emergency Room entrance.

Special parking accommodations for cancer physicians, staff and patients will extend through the construction phase.

When complete, the new Cancer Center will be two stories and include outpatient treatment care and several other services. (Inpatient care will be provided in the new patient tower facing I-65.)
