San Joaquin Community Hospital Announces $36.2 Million Cancer Center

San Joaquin Community Hospital (SJCH) recently announced it will be opening its Cancer Center adjacent to the hospital. The four-story, 60,000-square-foot facility will house radiation oncology, medical oncology and an outpatient surgery center – all under one roof. The estimated cost to build and equip The Cancer Center is $36.2 million. Officials expect it to be up and running in 12-15 months.

The Cancer Center will have only the best technology and the most experienced caregivers, specialists with board certification and/or fellowship training specifically in oncology. In addition to the construction jobs, The Cancer Center is also expected to create 100 highly-skilled, highly-paid professional positions – a welcome boost to the local economy.

SJCH President & CEO Bob Beehler emphasized how SJCH’s Sacred Work mission to heal the whole person – physically, emotionally and spiritually – is a natural fit to how The Cancer Center will operate. “Nothing cries out for the unique ministry of Sacred Work like cancer patients and currently 1 in 5 cancer patients leave town to seek care elsewhere,” he says. “We intend to do something about that by providing cancer care equal to that available in the most respected academic centers; we will demonstrate that with our affiliations and our certifications.”
