Construction begins on Missouri cancer center

May 7, 2015

The new $31 million Delbert Day Cancer Institute is being built in Rolla, Mo., according to an article on the Healthcare Construction + Operations website.

The cancer institute will occupy the first two floors of a new four-story, 100,470-square-foot building at the north end of the Phelps County Regional Medical Center (PCRMC)  and will be connected to the adjacent medical office building via a pedestrian bridge.

The architecture of the cancer institute includes a curving glass exterior and a green roof.

In addition to the lobby and registration, the first floor includes retail space, a health café, education space and a community center – all adjacent and open to the exterior healing garden.
