Representatives from eight collaborating organizations, including Hudson Hospital & Clinics, broke ground on the Cancer Center of Western Wisconsin in New Richmond Tuesday, Aug. 3.
The new facility will anchor a regional care delivery system specializing in cancer treatment services for patients in the western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota region.
Six hospitals are building the new cancer center and creating a cancer care delivery network that brings highend cancer treatment closer to patients, and enhances the hospitals’ abilities to provide local cancer care at each of their facilities.
The hospitals are Amery Regional Medical Center, Baldwin Area Medical Center, Hudson Hospital & Clinics, Osceola Medical Center, St. Croix Regional Medical Center (St. Croix Falls) and Westfields Hospital (New Richmond).
The new Cancer Center of Western Wisconsin will be staffed by specialists from Minneapolis Radiation Oncology P.A. and the HealthPartners Medical Group’s medical oncology department. The team will also provide support at each of the six hospitals on a routine basis, providing coordinated
cancer care prevention, treatment and supportive services.
The state-of-the-art facility and care system is expected to open next spring. It will offer patients specialized outpatient cancer treatments including radiation therapy, medical oncology and infusion therapy.
