FARGO, N.D. –- Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center has expanded and relocated its infusion center into the former emergency department at the Sanford Broadway location. The new space features 40 infusion rooms, up from the previous 30 rooms. Patients will continue to use the main entrance for the cancer center, located at 820 Fourth St. N., Fargo.
The relocation is part of an overall expansion and renovation of the cancer center to accommodate increasing patient volumes.
“Roger Maris Cancer Center has been offering exceptional cancer care in our region for decades, and we’re prepared to grow to serve even more patients in our region as we keep care close to home,” said Nancy Demarais, executive director, Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center.
The current renovations are being completed in phases, the next phase is to expand pediatric oncology by repurposing the old infusion center and pharmacy to serve more kids. Adult medical oncology exam rooms will also increase as well as space to be used for integrative therapies, such as reflexology, energy healing, and mind body classes.
Along with the renovations and expansion, the cancer center has also invested in additional physicians and staff to accommodate the increased volumes and specific patient needs.
Other renovations completed over the past year, include an expanded lobby and the addition of a new linear accelerator. The longer-term vision for the cancer center includes reconfiguring the entrance and seating area, adding services and specialties not previously offered locally, such as bone marrow transplant.
