Mayo Clinic to spend $130 million on integrated cancer center

August 21, 2012

The Mayo Clinic plans to integrate its cancer treatment programs in Phoenix. The project will add on to a facility already under construction. 

The Mayo Clinic’s Proton Beam Therapy Center is slated to open in 2016 and provide targeted radiation treatments. Mayo’s board of trustees has approved a 217,000 square foot addition above the proton beam building that will create an integrated cancer care center.

Mayo Clinic of Arizona CEO Wyatt Decker described the project in a video on their website. “Surgeons, oncologists, radiation experts, nursing staff, physical therapists, as well as the various equipment and procedures that our cancer patients might need will all be housed together in our Mayo Clinic Cancer Center,” Decker said.

Mayo will move several treatment programs from their Scottsdale campus onto their Phoenix campus near 56th Street and the 101. Mayo says the project will cost them $130 million. It’s scheduled to open in 2015.
