CLEVELAND — Cleveland Clinic plans to unite all of its cancer treatment centers under one roof with a new $276 million building, it announced Thursday.

The 377,000-square-foot, seven-story facility will house all outpatient care at Cleveland Clinic’s main campus.

It will be located north of Carnegie Avenue between East 102nd and East 105th streets (next to the Crile building).

“The new Cleveland Clinic cancer building will allow us to centralize the cancer care we provide, creating a seamless, personalized experience for patients from throughout the region, nation and world who turn to Cleveland Clinic in their time of need,” said Brian J. Bolwell, M.D., Chairman, Cleveland Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Institute. “Whether treated at our main campus or at one of our centers throughout the region, patients will benefit from this more integrated, collaborative approach, which is essential in making progress against cancer.”

The new facility will also be a place for expanded Phase I clinical trials, academics and research.

Cleveland Clinic said the building will use lots of natural light and include outdoor courtyard views to comfort and calm patients.

It will provide an additional 19 exam rooms and 17 private and semi-private chemo infusion rooms.

There will also be a spiritual support center.

Groundbreaking is set for Sept. 29, 2014.  The project is expected to be finished in early 2017.
