Construction crews are starting work on the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute at Saint Vincent.
The $25.6 million cancer treatment center will rise at the corner of West 25th and Myrtle streets with more than 36,000 square feet. The institute will replace services that Saint Vincent provides to the soon-to-be-defunct Regional Cancer Center.
President of St. Vincent Hospital, Dr. Chris Clark, says, “This is all about the patient. Clearly, we’re excited to be doing this for the community and for the region to be able to deliver comprehensive fully-integrated cancer services right here on our campus.”
The cancer institute is slated to open in the fall of 2019. UPMC Hamot, which is also part of the Regional Cancer Center, will house its facility in at the RCC’s existing location.
