Parkview unveils new patient-centered cancer institute

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Parkview Health unveiled its new cancer center on Tuesday.

The Parkview Cancer Institute on the Parkview Regional Medical Center campus is a 181,000 square-foot, 5-story facility designed to minimize the feeling of being in a hospital for cancer patients. The center was built to be what Parkview called a "healing environment."

Parkview outfitted the $100 million center with natural lighting, private spaces for families, respite rooms and more. It features the latest technology including high-powred MRI machine and new CT scanners to help specialists diagnose and treat a variety of cancers.

The physician-led Parkview Cancer Institute will also use an "enhanced care navigator system" that will allow for a coordinated process to help improve the quality of care and the patient experience.

Other features include an indoor garden and rooftop patio. 

Parkview Cancer Institute opens next month.

A public open house is scheduled for Sunday, May 20 from 1-5 p.m.

Can't make it? NewsChannel 15 will air a special "Parkview Health: A look inside the new cancer institute" on May 31 on WANE-TV.
