Kettering Health Network kicks off the construction of its new cancer center with a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, May 14 at 10:00 a.m. The groundbreaking will take place across the street from the Kettering Medical Center campus. Kettering Medical Center is located at 3535 Southern Blvd. in Kettering.
The 120,000-square-foot, five-story facility will cost approximately $49 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.
