New Cancer Institute Building
At Penn State Hershey, We're Building the Cancer Institute of Tomorrow
Construction of a four-story, 175,000-square-foot Cancer Center facility on the campus of Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is complete. The facility provides a new home for cancer-related clinical and research operations as well as a new main hospital entrance. The state-of-the-art facility brings leading-edge cancer treatment and ongoing cancer research together in one location to help Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute achieve its goal of acquiring the hallmark accreditation for academic cancer centers.

What We've Built
- Outpatient clinics with exam rooms, infusion stations, and private treatment rooms
- A day hospital where patients will receive chemotherapy treatments
- A healing garden to offer a quiet retreat for infusion therapy patients
- A Radiation Oncology suite
- Research labs connected to the main hospital and Penn State College of Medicine to encourage collaboration between patient treatment and cancer research
Maintaining Our Environment
Our new Cancer Institute building is surrounded by lush landscaping and trees to create an inviting entry. The architecture of the building itself allows for a great deal of natural light to be seen from the inside to help our patients and visitors feel more at home. In addition, only local products were used in our construction as well as recycling the waste from the construction site.
