MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper opened a new 13,000-square-foot multi-service outpatient unit at its flagship Camden location, with the goal of expanding cancer services in the region.
“When we partnered with MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston almost a decade ago, we knew our partnership would quickly grow to become the number one choice of consumers in the region by offering outstanding comprehensive cancer services. This expansion, which will offer multi-service outpatient care, demonstrates that our commitment to cancer patients is only growing and strengthening,” George Norcross III – chairman of the board of trustees of the Cooper Health System, Cooper University Hospital, and MD Anderson at Cooper – said in a statement.
The new unit, located on the center’s top floor, offers a range of diagnostic and treatment services to expand and complement existing services at the cancer center.
The new suites include:
- Malignant hematology clinical suite – For patients with blood cancers (leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma); additionally, the suite includes a procedure room for bone marrow biopsies and other procedures.
- Hydration and blood production infusion suite – For patients needing IV hydration and blood product infusion services; includes six semi-private infusion chairs (with massage features) and one private room.
- Full-service physical rehabilitation facility
- Interventional radiology suite – Providing patients with access to image-guided interventional procedures such as port placement (for the delivery of chemotherapy) and port removal, thoracentesis, and paracentesis.
In addition to these services, the space includes a check-in desk, a full break room with lockers for staff, blanket warmers and other patient amenities, and a nurse call system. Take a video tour by clicking here.
