David Lee Cancer Center
Charleston Area Medical Center, Inc. (CAMC) is an 893 bed tertiary patient care and teaching hospital system in Charleston, West Virginia. CAMC is West Virginia’s largest Medical Center and among the nations’ top 10 heart centers in volume. In 2007, CAMC completed a Master Facility Planning project to determine the healthcare needs of the communities it serves in the years to come and to position the Medical Center to meet those needs both operationally and functionally. In order to meet the needs of the patients who require Oncology services, CAMC will construct a free-standing Cancer Center on property to the south of the Memorial Hospital campus. The project will be a phased project on a multi-building campus located across a four lane highway (MacCorkle Avenue) which runs parallel with the Memorial Hospital campus.
The first phase is a three-story, 100,000 square foot facility housing the David Lee Cancer Center as well as a Breast Center. The David Lee Cancer Center includes 25 infusion chairs, pharmacy and 18 exam rooms. Included as a second or third phase will be an Outpatient Imaging center to replace an existing free-standing facility adjacent to the Memorial Hospital Campus and a new radiation oncology center with four modular treatment vaults and one radio-surgery vault. Site development and parking will be developed to serve all phases.
