COMMUNITY INVITED TO A “SNEAK PEEK” OF WILMOT CANCER INSTITUTE’S ANN AND CARL MYERS CANCER CENTER
UR Medicine’s Noyes Health, Jones Memorial Hospital and Wilmot Cancer Institute are hosting an informal “sneak peek” of the new Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center. Tours of the nearly completed facility, located at on the Noyes Health campus at 111 Clara Barton Street in Dansville, will be offered on in two sessions on Thursday, January 5: from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The “sneak peek” of the new facility is an opportunity to ask questions and learn about the services that will be available to cancer patients and their caregivers. Attendees should park in the north lot of Noyes Memorial Hospital and enter the building through hospital outpatient registration, then follow posted signs to the Cancer Center entrance.
The Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center is collaboration among Wilmot Cancer Institute, Jones Memorial Hospital, and Noyes Health. It will serve as a hub for oncology services, and it includes medical oncology services at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville and a radiation oncology clinic in Hornell. The Myers Cancer Center will provide patients in Livingston, Steuben and Allegany Counties more convenient access to comprehensive state-of-the art cancer care.
“This community has been so supportive of the cancer center project from the beginning,” says Noyes Health CEO Amy Pollard. “We wanted to make sure people have an opportunity to see the results of their efforts. “
“The Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center brings the best in cancer care closer to where our patients live and work,” adds Eva Benedict, CEO of Jones Memorial Hospital. “It will allow cancer patients in this region to focus on getting well rather than on the stress of traveling to and from treatment.”
“The opening of the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center reflects the community’s investment not just in the construction of this building, but also in transforming cancer care across the region,” says Jonathan W. Friedberg, M.D., MMSc, director of Wilmot Cancer Institute. “We are excited to provide a sneak peek at this new facility and what it will offer.”
Established with a $2 million gift from Ann and Carl Myers, the project features a 4,500-square-foot lower level addition housing a radiation oncology clinic, and a 2,300-square-foot medical oncology clinic featuring three exam rooms and five chemotherapy/infusion chairs on the first floor. 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.
