Mercy Health – Kentucky will build a new, $12.5 million, 19,000-square-foot comprehensive, full-service cancer center designed to address the growing need for cancer care services in Western Kentucky. Mercy Health will break ground on the center on Dec. 13. 

Mercy Health will provide full medical oncology and all associated and related cancer center services from the new cancer center. 

“We are thoughtfully designing and building a cancer center with our patients, their families and our caregivers in mind. Once the center is complete, it will be a warm and welcoming location where our patients receive care from a team focused on building connection with them,” says John Montville, Mercy Health – Lourdes Hospital oncology service line director.  

Mercy Health will locate the center in the open space between Lourdes Hospital and the Paducah Medical Pavilion. It will centralize oncology services on the Lourdes Hospital campus and house: 

  • a medical practice with space for three medical oncologists and hematologists and three advanced practice providers working from 21 exam rooms and one procedure room 
  • infusion center with 22 infusion bays with flexible configurations  
  • an oncology pharmacy and laboratory 
  • community resource room 
  • prayer and meditation room 
  • geothermal system with energy sustainability, the first in a Bon Secours Mercy Health facility 
  • space for all integrative and ancillary cancer services, such as oncology nurse navigation, oncology social workers, oncology financial counselors and many other supportive services 

Mercy Health anticipates that construction will be complete by the second quarter of 2024.
