Center Township (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Allegheny Health Network is breaking ground on a state-of-the-art, $20 million cancer center in Beaver County. The 34,000 square foot, 2-story building will go up in Center Township near the Beaver Valley Mall. The site is not far from Shell’s massive cracker plant on the banks of the Ohio River.

At a ground breaking event, AHN Cancer Institute Chair Dr. David Parda said, “We’re not building a community cancer center. We’re bringing the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute, the full force and capabilities to Beaver County.”

AHN’s President and Chief Executive Officer Cynthia Hunndorfean said in a statement, “… we understand that cancer patients’ experience and outcomes are both greatly enhanced by having access to high quality, comprehensive clinical and support services under one roof and in a location that is most convenient to them and their families.”

Pennsylvania has about 81,000 new cancer cases every year. The center in Beaver County is expected to treat several hundred patients annually with a staff of 40. It is expected to open in mid-2019.
