The Arizona Board of Regents has given final project approval for construction of The University of Arizona Cancer Center — Phoenix outpatient clinic at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus.
On Dec. 6, Regents also approved a ground lease for 1.56 acres from the city of Phoenix at the Biomedical Campus, and a 20-year facility lease with St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center/Dignity Health, which upon finalization of the lease will operate inpatient clinical cancer services at its main hospital campus and outpatient services at the new facility and at its hospital campus. Construction on the new facility will begin later this month.
The six-story, 230,000-square-foot, $100 million cancer clinic will be located at the northwest corner of Fillmore and Seventh streets and will offer comprehensive cancer services, including infusion, radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging, endoscopic/interventional radiology, a breast center, specialized cancer clinics, patient wellness and support services, a prevention/executive health clinic, clinical lab space and other related support spaces.
The new clinic should be open to patients by early 2015.
