BEAVERCREEK — The leadership of Kettering Health Network, Soin Medical Center and Greene Medical Foundation cut the ribbon on the newly expanded infusion center Nov. 13 at Soin Medical Center, 3535 Pentagon Blvd.
The event celebrated the medical oncology expansion at the hospital.
Soin Medical Center began an expansion of its cancer care program recently thanks to a $3 million commitment from the Greene Medical Foundation along with additional investment from Kettering Health Network. The foundation provided the grant to cover part of the $8 million overall expansion of Soin’s cancer services to Greene County.
This first phase of the expansion focused on the infusion center. The infusion center doubled in size to 13,000 square feet to accommodate more chemotherapy patients. The number of clinical exam rooms has also doubled to support the growing medical oncology team. The center is located at the hospital’s Ollie Davis Pavilion.
Soin opened its infusion center in 2014 with two oncologists and a plan to serve up to 300 patients. The expansion will allow the center to serve up to 1,000 patients.
Phase two of the expansion will be completed April 2018. It will add the latest in radiation therapy technology, an 8,300-square-foot suite will include a linear accelerator for radiation therapy, as well as a CT simulator and scanner to support the addition of an on-site radiation oncology team.
