It has been a few years since Inova Health System broke ground on their state of the art cancer research and treatment center. Now, the Inova Schar Cancer Institute is opening its doors.
Dozens gathered at The Inova Schar Cancer Institute for its grand opening Wednesday. The Inova Schar Cancer Institute is a multi-million dollar cancer research center designed to help patients fighting cancer stay in one area for all their treatments so they do not need to go to other cities. Officials say it’s a state of the art one-stop-shop.
“The plan gets put together for you on the first visit and we get to the treatment as fast as possible. We know if we do that, the right way, treatements start more quickly, it’s more coordinated, and actually cure rates are higher if we do that right. So that’s what we offer here in Northern Virginia, so you don’t have to go to Houston, or Chicago, or even Baltimore for their care,” said Doctor John Deeken, CEO of the Inova Schar Cancer Institute.
Patients will be welcome to start coming in for appointments starting May 13th.
