Rideout Cancer Center and UC Davis Health System leaders will break ground on a much needed Cancer Center expansion, August 3, 2011, beginning at 3pm.
The groundbreaking will take place on the facility grounds, Rideout Cancer Center, 618 5th Street, Marysville.
The ceremony will include presentations by UC Davis Health Systems and Fremont Rideout Health Group officials. Light appetizers and refreshments will be served.
The expansion was designed by Kelly Architecture and Planning, Inc. to provide a more comfortable, private environment for patients and their families. Hilbers Construction, Inc., a local firm, is leading the construction project.
The expansion will add 16,461 square feet of new construction and will enable us to add:
- 11 additional Transfusion Bays, for a total of 25
- 6 additional Exam Rooms for a total of 14
- 1 additional Linear Accelerator for a total of 2
- 1 new PET CT Scanner
- 1 new Ultrasound
- A remodel of the existing Pharmacy
Construction is expected to be completed by fall of 2012.
"We look forward to the opportunities that this enlarged facility will bring to our patients," says Susan Vague, Administrator, Rideout Cancer Center. "The construction will allow us to treat more patients. The Fremont-Rideout Cancer Center has had a meaningful impact on the lives of many men and women in our community who need treatment for cancer. Last year alone, more than 800 new patients were referred to the cancer center resulting in 28,500 patient visits."
