Kettering Health to build $49M cancer center

Kettering Health Network announced Monday that it is building a new $49 million cancer center on its hospital’s main campus in Kettering.

The hospital network plans to break ground on the 120,000-square-foot, five-story facility on May 14. Construction is expected to be completed in late 2016.

The cancer center will offer wide range of services, including specialized treatments to fight cancer. Amenities will include a café with a focus on the nutritional needs and tastes of patients with cancer; complimentary holistic medicines, such as medical massage; and a boutique in a serene, spa-like setting that provides access to post-surgical apparel and products designed to help cancer patients in recovery.

“This cancer center is being designed to provide the most advanced patient-centered care in an environment that focuses on healing the mind, body and spirit,” says Elizabeth Koelker, director of the oncology service line for Kettering Health Network. “We have the most sophisticated cancer treatment technology available so that patients do not have to travel out of the region to receive their cancer care. We also have the expertise required to help patients and their families navigate the journey through cancer treatment.”
