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 nation’s 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 operationally and functionally. To meet the needs of the patients who require Oncology services, CAMC will construct a free-standing Cancer Center on the property south of the Memorial Hospital campus. The project was a phased project on a multi-building campus across a four-lane highway (MacCorkle Avenue) that runs parallel to the Memorial Hospital campus.
The first phase is a three-story, 100,000-square-foot facility housing the David Lee Cancer Center and a Breast Center. The David Lee Cancer Center includes 25 infusion chairs, a pharmacy, and 18 exam rooms. A second or third phase will consist of 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.
