Central DuPage Hospital Wins State Approval to Build Cancer Center
Date:1/27/2009

All Outpatient Oncology Services will be Relocated to Adjacent Proton Site in Warrenville

CHICAGO, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) received Illinois state approval on its plans to build a comprehensive outpatient cancer treatment and imaging center in Warrenville. The Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board (IHFPB), in a unanimous vote of 4-0, approved the project's Certificate of Need application during today's meeting. Construction is expected to commence in late spring of this year and patients are expected to be treated in the new center by summer of 2010.

The new center will offer cancer patients the opportunity to receive all of their outpatient cancer care and related support services in a single, convenient location. Services available at the center will include physician services, on-site oncology pharmacists, chemotherapy, radiation therapy as well as all the necessary support services including diagnostic imaging, nutritional counseling, social work services, genetic counseling, and image-renewal services. Support groups, patient education and prevention programs, research and community outreach activities will also be available at the center.

"The Board's approval of this project will ensure our community has access to leading edge cancer care for years to come," said Luke McGuinness, president and chief executive officer, Central DuPage Hospital. "The estimated 25% of cancer patients that leave our community for some or all of their cancer care will now have the best cancer care and support services in their community. We believe combining these services in one convenient location is the type of care that our patients undoubtedly deserve."

Loyola University has recently entered into a 10-year clinical affiliation agreement for oncology services with CDH. Loyola medical oncologists have established a practice at CDH and will be among the physicians available to deliver medical oncology to patients at the center. The CDH-Loyola relationship will also allow for clinical research and clinical trials to be conducted in the local community, bringing a new level of academic clinical research to cancer care in the western suburbs.

"We are delighted to partner with Central DuPage Hospital and further our mission of broadening patient access to our world class services and leading research," said Patrick Stiff, MD, division director and the Coleman Professor of Oncology at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and the director of the Cardinal Bernadin Cancer Center at Loyola University Health System. "CDH's comprehensive cancer and diagnostic imaging center will allow many of Loyola's existing patients to stay in their community for the most advanced cancer care available."

The new cancer treatment center will be built on Weaver Parkway between Interstate-88 and West Diehl Road in Warrenville, Illinois.
