After undergoing a lumpectomy, Karen McGowan of Swedesboro faced questions that thousands of women face every year. Will I need chemo? Radiation? Some other treatment? And because it was March 2020, another question was on her mind. Would she be comfortable going to a hospital for treatment just as COVID-19 was arriving in South Jersey?
$70 Million Facility Projected to Open January 2020
MULLICA HILL, NJ (February 8, 2019) — Inspira Health celebrated the installation of the final steel beam for its new Leading-Edge Cancer Center located on the campus of the future Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill. The $70 million 100,000 square foot facility is projected to open in January of 2020.
The design of Inspira’s Leading-Edge Cancer Center will provide patients with convenient one-stop access to comprehensive oncology services. By co-locating medical, radiation and surgical oncologists in one space, patients who need to see multiple specialists will be able to do so in one visit, in one location and possibly in the same exam room. Services will include radiation oncology, medical oncology and surgical oncology, as well as support services, including social work, nutrition counseling, and nurse navigation. Access to clinical trials and support groups will also be offered.
“We have conducted focus groups and external surveys to understand what is important to our patients when undergoing treatment,” said John DiAngelo, president and CEO of Inspira Health. “From the warm and welcoming décor to the location of the coat hooks, every inch of Inspira’s Leading-Edge Cancer Center is being designed with the patient experience at the forefront. We know that patient-centered care supports clinical excellence and leads to better patient outcomes, which is what matters most.”
In addition to our Leading-Edge Cancer Center, this site will be home to a Medical Office Building with a variety of services including Cardiac Rehab, Physical Therapy and other Rehab Services, OB/GYN, Women’s Imaging, Maternal Fetal Medicine, Pediatrics, Urology, Orthopedics, preadmission testing, lab draw services, and a retail pharmacy.
