PHOENIX — With the help of Dignity Health, part of the Tucson-based University of Arizona is moving into downtown Phoenix.
The University of Arizona Cancer Center is slated for a 2015 opening at 625 N. Sixth Street, on the northwest corner of Fillmore and Seventh streets.
The 220,000 square-foot facility will boast five stories and cost $100 million to build.
“It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in the state of Arizona,” said Linda Hunt, senior vice president of operations, president and CEO of Dignity Health in Arizona.
The UACC will offer “comprehensive cancer services, including infusion, radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging, endoscopic/interventional radiology, a women’s center, specialized cancer clinics, patient wellness and support services, a prevention/executive health clinic, clinical lab space and other related support spaces,” according to a press release.
“We believe this facility and the extraordinary combined medical talents from St. Joseph’s and UA Cancer Center will allow us to reach new heights in providing extraordinary cancer care,” said Hunt.
