Community members are invited to join cancer survivors, local leaders, patients and caregivers from St. Charles to celebrate the groundbreaking for the new Cancer Center in Redmond on Wednesday, June 26 at 10 a.m.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone for our new Cancer Center, which shows our commitment to providing world class care to cancer patients throughout the region,” said Dr. Steve Gordon, President and CEO for St. Charles. “This new facility will have a tremendous positive impact on our community, as it will expand access and services to Redmond and surrounding communities, serving 300 or more cancer patients every day.”

In addition to the groundbreaking ceremony, attendees will be able to walk the footprint of the new 53,000-square-foot building and learn about the services provided, including radiation oncology, chemotherapy infusion, surgical oncology, expanded support services and much more. Those in attendance will also have the opportunity to contribute to an art display that will be part of the new center.

St. Charles board member and longtime Redmond resident Jon Bullock says that this cancer center is a positive development not just for cancer patients and their families, but for Redmond overall.

“We have the chance to be a special place in the world, where families can get the compassionate care they need at the most difficult time of their life. Our community can be there to take care of them,” said Bullock. “This could be a catalyst to positively impact the culture of Redmond forever. I’m so excited about it and look forward to kicking off the celebration together.”

Light refreshments will be provided.

Attendees should be aware that this is an active construction area and should wear closed toed shoes and dress accordingly.
