The $100 million University of Arizona Cancer Center-Phoenix, a planned six-story, 230,000-square-foot facility, has been approved by the Arizona Board of Regents for construction at the downtown Phoenix Biomedical Campus.

The clinic will offer comprehensive cancer services, including infusion, radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging, endoscopic/interventional radiology, a breast center and other services. St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center will operate outpatient services at the new center, while inpatient cancer services will be done at the main hospital.

The new clinic is expected to begin treating patients by early 2015.

The University of Arizona Cancer Center is one of 41 comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health.
