UNC Rex Healthcare has announced a $65 million project to build a new cancer center next to the main hospital in Raleigh.
Construction on the new four story, 145,000-sq. ft. structure is set to start in spring 2019 at the corner of Blue Ridge and Macon Pond roads.
The cancer center should open in late 2020.
“We believe our new cancer center will create a hub for oncology care for patients from across Wake County and Eastern North Carolina,” UNC Rex president Steve Burriss said in a statement. “This center will provide a new home to care for more people who rely on us for treatment and support during a cancer diagnosis.”
The four-story building is more than double the space currently dedicated to cancer care on the Rex Hospital campus, officials said.
