Hudson Valley Hospital Center Breaks Ground on $12 million Cancer Center and Medical Offices

 

HVHC Cancer Center will offer state-of-the-art radiation and infusion therapy to patients closer to home

Cortlandt Manor, NY - (August 7, 2010) - Hudson Valley Hospital Center broke ground recently on a $12 million Cancer Center and Medical Office Building.

Designed by the architectural firm of Pallante Design of Newark, the 54,000 square-foot building will house a new state-of-the-art Cancer Center and medical offices. The Cancer Center will be located on the ground floor of the three-story glass and stucco structure with medical offices on the second and third floors. A first-floor walkway will connect the Cancer Center to the main building, giving doctors and patients convenient access to the hospital.

"People undergoing treatment for cancer should not have to travel long distances to get excellent care," said John Federspiel, President of Hudson Valley Hospital Center. "Our new Cancer Center will not only provide top-notch care close to home, but will also provide doctors with medical offices close to the hospital."

The Cancer Center will offer radiation and infusion therapy as well as support services. A radiation oncologist will be on site to oversee treatment and ensure patient-centered, holistic care that is in keeping with the philosophy of Hudson Valley Hospital Center.

The building's top two floors will be dedicated to medical office space. Tenants could include surgeons who practice at the hospital as well as oncologists affiliated with the new Cancer Center.

The new Cancer Center follows the recent opening of a four-story, all-private room patient tower at Hudson Valley Hospital Center. The $100 million renovation and expansion also included a new lobby, 84 all-private patient rooms, doubling the size of the Emergency Department and the addition of new, state-of-the-art Surgery Center and 450-space parking garage.
