Cleveland Clinic to build new $276M cancer center

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (AP) - Officials say the Cleveland Clinic will soon begin building a new cancer facility on its main campus.

The Plain Dealer reports that clinic officials introduced plans Thursday for a 377,000-square-foot facility that will consolidate all of the clinic's cancer treatment under one roof.

Construction on the $276 million facility is expected to be completed in early 2017. A $2 billion fundraising campaign launched in June will help pay for the project.

More than 10 locations on the clinic's main campus currently provide cancer care. Officials say the new facility will allow for all of the clinic's cancer treatment to occur in the same place.

The new center will not affect oncology services at regional locations.

Groundbreaking for the new cancer center is scheduled for Sept. 29.
