Kettering Health Network is holding a beam signing & topping out ceremony for its Cancer Center on Wednesday, December 9 at 1:00 p.m. The ceremony will take place across the street from the Kettering Medical Center campus. Kettering Medical Center is located at 3535 Southern Blvd. in Kettering.
Members of the media are invited to attend.
The 120,000-square-foot, five-story facility will cost approximately $49 million. A sky bridge is being built to connect the cancer center to Kettering Medical Center over Southern Boulevard at a cost of approximately $5 million. Construction is expected to be completed in late 2016.
The cancer center will offer complete care to patients in a caring environment, with dedicated patient-centric services and specialized treatments to fight cancer. The center will serve as a single touch point for patients, providing them with a wide range of services.
A full menu of cancer-specific amenities is being tailored to patients in the new center including a café with a focus on the nutritional needs and tastes of patients with cancer; complimentary holistic medicines such as medical massage; and a boutique in a serene, spa-like setting that provides access to post-surgical apparel and products specific to helping patients through their cancer journey.
