LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Indiana University Health Arnett is set to begin a nearly $2 million renovation project at its Lafayette Cancer Center.
Oncology Administrative Director Katie McGill said the renovations are meant to make the facility more open and patient friendly. The project includes expanding the facility’s lab, infusion therapy area and exam rooms.
Work will begin on the Cancer Center, a 25,000 square-foot facility, on Monday, May 19 and is set to be complete in December. The center is located at 420 N. 26th St. in Lafayette.
Dr. Thomas Meyer, Division Director of Medical Specialties at IU Health Arnett, said the Cancer Center provides comprehensive, best-in-class care for cancer services. He continued to add that the center’s expertise to deliver care is not available any where else within North Central Indiana.
“We have a responsibility to ensure that residents in our area have access to the leading-edge care,” Meyer told News 18 in a release. “Because of this, we are reinvesting nearly $2 million into the existing building and thus the surrounding Columbian Park neighborhood.”
The Cancer Center will remain opening during construction and care will continue through the various phases of the renovation.
