This five-story, 175,000 square-foot cancer center serves as the center piece of the Penn State Cancer Institute, a statewide network of hospitals dedicated to providing the latest therapies and advanced care to cancer patients. The new facility brings together leading-edge cancer treatment with ongoing cancer research in one complex and positions Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center to earn National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation – the hallmark accreditation for comprehensive cancer centers.
The building provides three floors of patient care and two floors of research, lab and office space. Construction began in August 2006 and the building opened in July 2009.
