PHOENIX — City and University of Arizona officials gathered Thursday to cut a ceremonial ribbon at a new cancer center in downtown Phoenix.

The University of Arizona Cancer Center will open to the public Aug. 24. The center, a collaboration between UA, Dignity Health Arizona and St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix will be located on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus near Seventh and Fillmore streets.

The five-story, 220,000-square-foot center has 70 exam rooms, space for clinical research and various treatment areas. It will provide outpatient care and is one of only two Arizona centers designated a comprehensive cancer center by the National Cancer Institute.

“All of the care is focused through teams that include physicians, dietitians and social workers,” Deputy Director Dr. Peter Lance said. “We want everybody with cancer to be a survivor.”

St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center CEO Patty White said that team also comprises some of the best doctors in the field.

“We’ve searched the world over,” she said. “We’re bringing medical expertise into this community.”

Lance said the center “is going to be as wonderful a place to go and get the treatment as people could possibly get.”

St. Joseph’s will continue to offer inpatient care at its main hospital near Third Avenue and Thomas Road.
