Open house Aug. 19 for CMC’s new ER, chemotherapy dept

Cambridge Medical Center will host an open house noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 19 to celebrate the completion of its new Emergency Room (ER) and expanded Chemotherapy/IV therapy department.  The new space opens for patient care on Sept. 6.

Guests can get a behind the scenes look at the new $10.5 million facility as well as enjoy refreshments, register for a prize drawing, and get a close look at emergency medical transport vehicles, including the LifeLink III helicopter ambulance, a restored 1953 Packard Henney ambulance, and new Allina Health ambulance.

“We are happy to invite the community in for a first-hand look at the improvements,” said Dennis Doran, president of CMC.  “We’re very proud of the care that our ER and Chemotherapy staff provides and now to be able to deliver that care in a first-class facility is something we are all excited about.”

The medical center’s building project also increased the size of the Chemotherapy department and added a new entrance and registration area for all patients coming for surgery or outpatient services.

For cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and for patients receiving IV therapy, the addition of five large, private chemotherapy/IV therapy suites will make their treatment more comfortable.

Guests coming to the open house should look for the tents on the west side of the medical center, on the Fern Street side. Parking is available on the west and south side of the medical center.
