Orlando, Florida (July 20, 2018) – The final phase of construction is complete for Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center – Dr. Phillips, offering patients in communities throughout southwest Orlando convenient access to advanced cancer care right in their back yard.
“We’re very excited to be able to reach our patients in this part of the community with the advanced cancer care they’ve come to expect from us,” said Mark Roh, M.D., president of Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center. “Now that this new facility is complete, our patients won’t have to endure the difficulties of traveling downtown for appointments; for most treatments, they’ll enjoy the benefit of being close to home.”
Located on the campus of Orlando Health Dr. P. Phillips Hospital, the new Cancer Center occupies an 18,000 square-foot facility previously held by Orlando Health Physician Associates. Patients will have access to full-service cancer treatment with expanded chemotherapy and radiation treatment areas, medical oncology services, surgical oncology consultations, oncologic pharmacy services, laboratory facilities, and Cancer Support Community programs. The facility address is 7472 Docs Grove Circle, Orlando, Florida 32819.
“As southwest Orlando continues to evolve, we want to ensure we are continuing to meet the needs of our community,” says Thibaut van Marcke, president of Orlando Health Dr. P. Phillips Hospital. “Our new, expanded cancer center will allow our patients to receive the same high level of care they are accustomed to from our downtown campus in their own backyard.”
The new Cancer Center celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Orlando Health leadership, physicians and team members, as well as Dr. Phillips-area business and community leaders.
