Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center on the Banner Gateway campus will break ground in January 2013 on an expansion of its outpatient cancer facility, offering a new service and additional equipment and treatment areas to meet the needs of its rapidly growing patient population.

The 111,000-square-foot expansion will take place to the south of the existing 130,000-square-foot building and will add:

  • Three linear accelerators (two at opening and one vault for future use) for a future total of six, used for external beam and internal radiation treatments
  • 30 additional clinic exam rooms for a total of 60 rooms
  • 13 additional infusion bays for a total of 53
  • Expansion of Laboratory Intake Center and Welcome Center
  • The Cox Center for Integrative Oncology and Cancer Prevention, funded in large part by a grant from the James M. Cox Family Foundation
  • Dedicated space for the Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy program
  • Additional shell space for future expansion needs

"We're proud to be living our vision of providing premier cancer services in the Valley," said Todd Werner , CEO of Banner MD Anderson. "Our patients deserve nothing less than the best care and treatment options available."

Banner MD Anderson will break ground on the $62.6 million expansion project on Jan. 22. The newly added area will open in spring 2014.
