CMC Gets Ready To Open New Cancer Treatment Facility

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The largest cancer center in Western Montana is getting ready to open its doors to the public. An open house was held Thursday night for Community Medical Center's new Cancer Care Center.

This new $15 million Cancer Care Center is almost five times the size of the original one, at about 18,000 square feet. It'll provide services like chemotherapy, clinical visits and radiation. CMC officials said a full-time radiation oncologist will allow for more clinical trials.

"Too few cancer centers in America are coordinated, where all providers come together, are evidence-based, and really our commitment is to address those things," said CMC CEO Steve Carlson.

The center officially opens it's doors on Monday, while the radiation wing is expected to open this spring.
