Construction has been underway for a little more than a year.

 

The new 13 million dollar facility will have all cancer services under one roof -- and not in several locations anymore.

 

Allison McCormick is the Director of the St. Charles Cancer Center and is proud of what they accomplished.

 

"It's amazing.  I get a little emotional when I think about what this will be able to do. Patients here come here for extended periods of time.  Some we see for months.  And we hear from them that our environment is very calming.  And all our services will be under one roorf.  Many of our patients won't have to go back and forth.  Everything wil  be fully integrated."

 

Caregivers and patients had a great deal of input on the design to make sure it will be user friendly for everyone.

 

Dr. Linyee Chang is the Medical Director of St. Charles Cancer Center.

 

"It's historic right?  For the first time all our cancer services will be under one roof.  And not just mecdcal therapy  -- chemotherapy and radiation, but labs and also our integrated oncology services like accupuncture or say you're feeling nauseated from chemotherapy, you can do reiki to relax.  It's all right under one roof."

 

The new center has a huge, light and airy "infusion room" for patients undergoing chemotherapy.  It has panoramic views of the moutains and Pilot Butte.

 

The center also has a healing garden built in honor of Sister Catherine Hellman, a long time former CEO of St. Charles.
