It's a multi-million dollar facility that will help hundreds of people in our area fighting cancer.
Administrative Director of the cancer center said, "what we've done here is create a center that is really unlike any other in the community."
It starts with the technology. The $7.5 million center is home to state-of-the-art equipment. The first is called the Linear Accelerator. Basically, it can take CT images, X-rays and administer radiation in one visit.
"They [patients] don't want to lay there. They're scared, they're in pain, they're sick and if we can get them off the table and back home quicker, all the better for them," Seifert told 13abc.
The other piece of equipment is also multipurpose. It can get a CT and PET scan without the patient having to move. That helps doctors see the exact area that needs to be hit with radiation.
But the best part is all of the care happens under one roof.
Seifert says, "instead of our patients having to go out in the never, never land of the campus, they're all going to come here and all of our specialist are going to come to them."
