NYS Senator Cathy Young Tours the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center Project in Dansville
Monday, February 8, 2016
Noyes Health was pleased to host New York State Senator, Cathy Young for a tour of the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center project on Saturday, February 6th. Senator Young made a quick stop between scheduled events in the area to see, first-hand, the progress of the site work which will become the concrete vault for the cancer center linear accelerator, and visit the renovated Diagnostic Imaging and Physical Therapy space which will be opening soon.
Tim Levee, Pike Company Project Superintendent and Deb McCray, Noyes Health Engineering Project Manager explained to Senator Young what phase the cancer center project was in and the next steps needed to complete the vault, along with additional renovations that would be occurring to existing space in the hospital. Amy Pollard, Noyes Health President/CEO was on hand to welcome the Senator, along with Mike Donegan, Director of Diagnostics and Rehab Therapy and Cynthia Oswald, Director of the Foundation and PR.
The cancer center is a collaborative project between Wilmot Cancer Institute, Jones Memorial Hospital and Noyes Health. The Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center will be located on the campus of Noyes Hospital and provide patients in the Finger Lakes, Southern Tier and Western New York more convenient access to comprehensive cancer care. It will serve as a hub for oncology services, and includes a medical oncology clinic in Hornell, Steuben County.
Established with a $2 million gift from Ann and Carl Myers, the regional cancer center at Noyes is expected to be completed in 2017. The $5.8 million project will feature a 4,500-square-foot, lower level addition to house radiation oncology clinic and a 2,300-square-foot medical oncology clinic, featuring three exam rooms and five chemotherapy/infusion bays, in renovated and new first-floor space.
The regional cancer center will also provide patients with access to services including advanced diagnostic testing, clinical trials, outpatient palliative care, and Wilmot Cancer Institute’s Judy DiMarzo Cancer Survivorship Program. Physicians at the cancer center and medical oncology clinic at Jones will have access to UR Medicine’s region-wide electronic medical record system and regular consultations with multidisciplinary teams focused on cancer. The Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center project is unique in our region and comes at a time when health systems across the country are forging relationships to ensure specialty services while improving quality.
