HINSDALE – Adventist Hinsdale Hospital and Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital foundations hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the Adventist Cancer Institute and Outpatient Center on June 17.

The event took place at the construction site of the new cancer center on Ogden Avenue and Salt Creek Lane in Hinsdale and brought together key stakeholders to celebrate the start of construction. More than 175 guests including foundation donors, civic and hospital leaders and members of the local communities gathered to mark the occasion, according to a press release.

Scheduled for completion in 2015, the center will house oncology services from both Adventist Hinsdale and Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospitals, as well as imaging services, including all general imaging and women-focused imaging services, such as mammography. Certified physicians from both hospitals will provide services to patients at the facility, according to a press release.

“With the technological offerings and design amenities we have planned, this new center will care for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of all our patients,” Michael J. Goebel, chief executive officer of Adventist Hinsdale and Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospitals, said in a statement.

At a cost of about $48 million dollars, the 54,000-square-foot facility will include 19 private treatment rooms equipped with entertainment centers and high-tech comforts to help patients stay connected with home and work.

Both the Hinsdale Hospital Foundation and the La Grange Memorial Hospital Foundation have started raising money to support the new facility.
