In 1993, St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor opened the area’s first comprehensive cancer center, the Robert H. and Judy Dow Alexander Cancer Center. Last month, the hospital broke ground on a new $24 million Cancer Center. The 66,000-square-foot facility will be able to serve the hospital’s growing number of patient, using the latest medical technologies, research-driven treatments, and revolutionized clinical and support services.
“This new state-of-the-art facility will help cancer patients and their families by combining the very best in prevention, screening, research, treatment and support all in one location,” said Dave Brooks, president, St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor and Livingston hospitals.
Patient care will continue on St. Joe’s Ann Arbor campus during construction. Infusion, exam rooms, staff offices and research will relocate in September to the Michigan Orthopedic Center (5315 Elliott Dr.) and Reichert Health Building (5333 McAuley Dr.). Radiation Oncology will remain in its current location in the existing Cancer Center during construction. Completion of the new Center is set for November 2019.
