In The Region:

The Cleveland Clinic will break ground on its main campus next month for a facility to house all its cancer treatment tools under one roof. As WKSU’s Kevin Niedermier reports, it’s an effort to make treatment easier and more effective for the growing number of cancer patients.

The Cleveland Clinic hopes to complete the $276 million multi-disciplinary cancer facility in early 2017. Dr. Brian Bolwell heads the Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Institute. He says the clinic has out-grown that main campus building, and, other cancer treatment options like lab work, surgery and radiation therapy are spread across the campus.

That makes it hard for patients to navigate. Bolwell says putting all cancer treatment, including spiritual and family support in the same building is gaining popularity nationally.

“I think it’s increasingly accepted that multi-disciplinary care leads to optimal outcomes. I think it’s increasingly accepted that a patient centered and centric approach is the best way to go about dealing with these clinical challenges.”

And Bolwell says because we’re living longer, there are more cases of cancer to be treated.

In 2011, Cleveland’s University Hospitals opened its Seidman Cancer Center which consolidates all of its cancer treatment tools.
