New York Oncology Hematology is planning to open a new cancer center in Clifton Park, slated to be the largest cancer facility in southern Saratoga County.
The Capital Region’s largest cancer care provider announced Tuesday that it will build the center at the corner of Crossing Boulevard and Sitterly Road. Construction will start this spring and be completed next year.
“In response to our existing patients as well as expected population growth, we recognized the need for a comprehensive cancer care in Clifton Park and are pleased to make our physicians, drug trials and genetic expertise more convenient for residents of southern Saratoga County,” said Nini Wu, president of NYOH, in a news release.
The 28,000-square-foot center will provide radiation oncology and medical oncology, according to NYOH. The facility will house state-of-the-art PET and CT machines, which could pinpoint the location and size of tumors for more efficient treatment.
The cancer center marks NYOH’s first facility in Clifton Park. The center is projected to cost $20 million for construction and equipment. NYOH selected Columbia Development and BBL Construction Services for the project.
NYOH has seven offices throughout the region. The provider plans to move its Latham practice into the Clifton Park facility next year. The cancer provider is an independent, physician-owned practice.
“The Clifton Park Cancer Center is being designed for the future,” Wu said. “It will satisfy the community’s current cancer treatment needs, while giving us the capacity to meet future needs, as advances in healthcare and treatment come on the scene.”
