CRH to unveil cancer center improvements next week

Columbus Regional Hospital is announcing that work has finished on the hospital’s expansion and renovation of the Cancer Center.

Work on the project began in 2014, says Kelsey deClue, spokeswoman for the hospital. Declue says that the center added 6,600 feet of floor space and now offers an expanded waiting area, larger chemotherapy bays and a bigger pharmacy. There are also more private patient rooms and the center will be adding two new radiation oncologists and more cutting edge treatment options.

An open house will be held on March 24th at the center to show the improvements off to the public. That will be from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The center is part of the main hospital campus off of 17th Street.
