Rush University Medical Center has commenced construction on its new $450 million Cancer and Neurosciences Center in Chicago.
The groundbreaking event occurred Tuesday as reported by GlobeSt. The building will be on Chicago’s near West Side and will offer the patients a compelling new experience: “from the moment patients enter the front doors, we want them to experience personalized attention that makes their transitions through the building comfortable and smooth” noted Dr. Omar Lateef, CEO of Rush University Medical Center.
The building will house outpatient clinical services for cancer and neurosciences, including diagnostic imaging, radiation therapy, infusion therapy and integrative medicine. Patients will have access to new treatment options at the center through expanded clinical trials, the hospital states.
Moreover, the latest technologies will be introduced—from diagnostic imaging and on-site radiation oncology with an MRI linear accelerator to on-site lab facilities and digital specialty pharmacy. Rush University Medical Center is gearing up for the next generation of medicine including expansive support of clinical trials.
