DANSVILLE – The Dansville Lions Club has delivered on their multi-year commitment to support the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center construction project.
According to a press release from U of R Medicine Noyes Health, Dansville Lions Club members Mike Cloonan and Barry Haywood visited Noyes Health on July 13 to present a $2000 donation to the cancer center project.
Accepting the donation were Noyes Health Foundation Chairman Jon Shay, Noyes Health President and CEO Amy Pollard and Noyes Health Director of Public Relations and Foundation Mary Sue Dehn.
The center is expected to open early next year.
The center is a collaboration of UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute, Jones Memorial Hospital and UR Medicine Radiation Oncology, along with Noyes Health.
Established with a $2 million gift from Ann and Carl Myers, the regional cancer center at Noyes is expected to be completed in early 2017. The $5.8 million project will feature a 4,500 square foot lower level addition to house a radiation oncology clinic and a 2,300 square foot medical oncology clinic featuring three exam rooms and seven chemotherapy/infusion chairs in renovated and new first-floor space.
The cancer center will be located on the campus of Noyes Hospital and provide patients in the Finger Lakes, Southern Tier and Western New York more convenient access to comprehensive cancer care. It will serve as a hub for oncology services, and it includes a medical oncology clinic at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville, Allegany County, and a UR Medicine Radiation Oncology clinic in Hornell, Steuben County.
