Summit Medical Center opens cancer infusion treatment center
May 23, 2017
The St. Anthony Summit Medical Center in Frisco officially opened a new infusion treatment and specialty care center last week on the third floor of the Medical Office Building.
The 5,200-square-foot facility features four infusion chairs, which hospital officials say will allow local cancer patients to get treatment closer to home and without making the long commute to the Front Range.
In addition, the center has multiple exam rooms for specialty care providers including ear-nose-and-throat, oncology, neurology, endocrinology general surgery and breast surgery.
"One of our core values is compassion and I can't think of a more compassionate act than to heal the sick in their own community, near friends and family and all things comfortable," Summit Medical Center CEO Paul Chodkowki said in a news release.
During a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 17, Father Michael Glenn of Our Lady of Peace parish, whose flock helped provide a final fundraising push for the center, blessed the space.
The total cost of the new facility was $1.5 million, which was split between Centura Health and Catholic Health Initiatives as well as individual donors, companies, churches and foundations.
