This new comprehensive cancer centre is currently under construction at the Foothills Medical Centre site in Calgary. The 95,000-plus-square-metre complex will include 160 inpatient beds, outpatient facilities with over 100 exam rooms, systemic treatment and radiation treatment technologies, clinical trial units and research laboratories, a knowledge exchange centre and 1650 stalls of underground parking. The centre will provide much-needed access to cutting-edge treatment and care for residents of Calgary and southern Alberta.
Despite inclement weather hitting the Calgary in early fall, 13 levels of the concrete structure have been built (eight above ground and five below ground). Interior construction works up to Level 6 are underway, and exterior work, including glass installation, has begun.
The facility is on schedule to open in 2023.
