I’m pleased to say that construction is steadily progressing on the William E. Kahlert Regional Cancer Center and Tevis Center for Wellness on our hospital campus.
If you drive along Stoner Avenue, you’ll be able to see the 748 yards of concrete that was recently poured for the cancer center’s linear accelerator vaults, used in radiotherapy treatment, to the far right of the construction project. Outside the main entrance of the Dixon building, structural steel support beams have been put in place for the cancer center’s new two-story concourse.
The interior of the former ambulatory care center has been demolished, and crews have erected new walls, which will be primed and ready for paint by the end of the month. Inside, new mechanical and electrical systems are being installed.
The sitework continues for the underground stormwater piping.
The project remains on schedule, with the anticipated opening of the cancer and wellness centers slated for fall 2014.
