In June, the new St. Mary’s Cancer Treatment Center opened on the 2nd floor of the DePaul Wing at St. Mary’s. Triple the size of its former location at Samaritan Hospital, the new cancer center at St. Mary’s is specially designed for and by cancer patients, allowing for many expanded programs as well as new services and amenities. In addition to treatment and exam areas, the center includes an integrative wellness room, a family consult room and a boutique.
The new parking garage on the Samaritan Hospital campus opened in August. The four-level, 570-car, 200,000-square-foot structure is considered the linchpin component of the Troy Master Facilities Plan (MFP) – offering both convenient new parking for patients, visitors and staff, and a glimpse into the promise of a Healthy Future, Healthy Troy. Construction of the parking garage cost $10 million. Part of the funding was provided by New York State through the Capital Region Economic Development Council, which awarded $1.25 million in grant funding for the project.
In addition to the opening of the new St. Mary’s Cancer Treatment Center and the parking garage building at the Samaritan Hospital campus, the Troy MFP project also features the construction of the new Heinrich Medicus Pavilion at the Samaritan campus, with a new, expanded emergency department, intensive care, progressive care, and medical/surgical beds. Construction for the pavilion is expected to begin in the fall. The MFP is targeted for completion in 2017.
