Kettering Health Network is celebrating the completion of the new radiation therapy center at Soin Medical Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 3 for members of the media.
The public is invited to a community open house for its entire comprehensive cancer services on May 9 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Kettering Cancer Care is located at the hospital's Ollie Davis Pavilion in Beavercreek.
Attendees will be able to tour the center and meet oncology physicians.
According to a press release, the success of the cancer center allowed for an $8 million expansion to cancer services provided at Soin.
Phase one of the expansion doubled the infusion center in size to 13,000 square feet to accommodate more chemotherapy patients.
Clinical exam rooms also doubled in size to support the growing on-site medical oncology team.
The expanded infusion center opened in fall 2017.
The radiation center was completed in phase two of the expansion.
The 8,300-square-foot radiation therapy center includes a linear accelerator for radiation therapy, as well as a CT simulator and scanner to support the addition of an on-site radiation oncology team.
Greene Medical Foundation provided a $3 million grant to cover part of the cost.
Kettering Health Network is a not-for-profit network of 8 hospitals, 10 emergency departments, and 120 outpatient facilities serving southwest Ohio.
