Groundbreaking for Cancer Center on Premier Healh Campus - Middletown
Last week, Middletown Regional Hospital broke ground on the second building on Premier Health Campus - Middletown. The two-story cancer center is the second of nine buildings currently planned for the campus located a quarter mile east of Interstate 75 at the Middletown exit.
The cancer center will be connected to the new Atrium Medical Center. This connection allows for direct access between hospital services and the comprehensive cancer services located in the cancer center. The center will provide infusion therapy and radiation therapy featuring a new linear accelerator, as well as alternative therapies, pain management and consultations with a dietitian and exercise physiologist.
"We're pleased to break ground on the second building for Premier Health Campus - Middletown," said Douglas W. McNeill, president and CEO of Middletown Regional Health System. "By consolidating our oncology services into one building, we're making treatment more convenient for patients and their families. While our existing cancer services are nationally recognized*, we look forward to expanding our technology and treatment options in the new cancer center so that we can continue serving patients' needs for many years to come."
When complete, the 190-acre campus will include the state-of-the-art Atrium Medical Center with attached medical office building and behavioral health pavilion, in addition to the attached cancer center. The campus will also contain the Ann & Arthur W. Bidwell Surgery Center, a freestanding outpatient surgery facility. A number of other buildings will be built as a result of partnerships, including the Dayton Children's outpatient center, a campus YMCA, senior housing and the Greentree Health Science Academy, a collaboration with Butler Technology and Career Development Schools, Miami University, Middletown Regional Hospital and Warren County Career Center.
