The University of South Alabama Mitchell Cancer Institute will hold a public groundbreaking ceremony and reception for a new cancer treatment facility at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 26, adjacent to the Baldwin County Satellite Courthouse at 1100 Fairhope Ave. in Fairhope.
The event is free and open to the public.
An 11,000-square-foot facility will be constructed on the 2-acre site and will include exam rooms, cancer treatment areas and physicians’ offices to be completed by early 2017. The building will replace the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute office currently housed at Thomas Hospital Medical Office Building in Fairhope.
“This new Mitchell Cancer Institute home in Baldwin County will offer many advantages for patients,” said MCI Director Dr. Michael A. Finan. “It will be a convenient, pleasant clinic environment with ease of access and room for us to provide many patient-centered services, such as support groups and educational events for patients and the community.”
The property for the project was purchased from the Arthur Corte family.
“We feel very fortunate to be able to help expand the Mitchell Cancer Institute presence on the Eastern Shore,” Corte said.
WHLC Architecture of Fairhope is handling design services.
Finan said MCI is committed to treating patients in Baldwin County, one of the fastest growing counties in Alabama.
“Our patients on the Eastern Shore, and throughout the communities of Baldwin County, will benefit from a more convenient location,” he said. “With the completion of the space, our Baldwin County patients will be able to park right outside the door.”
USA Mitchell Cancer Institute is the only academic cancer institute located along the upper Gulf Coast corridor, with operations in Mobile, Fairhope and Monroeville.
