Cancer clinic to get a $3.4 million renovation


Bluewater Health is preparing for a $3.4 million renovation of the Cancer Clinic.

Officials say the clinic is seeing more patients than it was designed for and the faiclity no longer meets the needs of patients including accessibility, comfort and privacy.

The renovation will bring the oncology and pharmacy and the services needed for cancer patients together to make it easier for patients to access what they need.

The redeveloped space will include new patient reception and waiting areas, and clinical rooms where exams, procedures and consultations can take place with physicians and care team in a private area. A brand new state of the art lab was installed last year and the onsite pharmacy will provide the remaining piece of the network of services for patients to support their treatment and care.

The Bluewater Health Foundation will be raising the money for the renovations.

“It will take significant community support and investment, and the Foundation has committed to raising $3.7 million for the redevelopment of this incredibly important community resource. We are asking our generous community to consider making a gift towards this upcoming project,” says foundation Executive Director Kathy Alexander.

The redevelopment is expected to be complete in 2025.
