Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital expands cancer care center to bring treatment closer to home

Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital is expanding its cancer center in Geneva to help provide patients with additional cancer clinics and therapies.

The project, which is underway, will add 15,500 square feet — including 17 new private infusion bays, a consultation room, 19 exam rooms and a procedure room — to the hospital’s cancer center. In addition, 6,000 square feet of the existing center will be renovated.

“Cancer treatment is more effective than it has ever been, but our new treatments require more space and resources, so we need to expand our oncology services here in the Fox Valley,” said Dr. Christopher M. George, medical director of the cancer center. “Our expanded cancer center will continue to provide state-of-the-art therapies as well as diagnostic services. But a bigger cancer center will allow us to increase the number of specialty clinics and new cancer therapies here, without requiring patients to travel downtown. .”

The cancer center at Geneva Hospital was built in 2012 and has not been renovated since it was built, officials said.

Additionally, the project will double the size of the center’s pharmacy, allowing for additional workstations and an expanded medication room to accommodate additional equipment.

Construction of the expanded cancer center is expected to be completed by spring 2024.
