WINCHESTER, VA (August 17, 2015) – Kathryn Perry Werner was the first to sign the support beam at a ceremony at the new cancer center under construction at Winchester Medical Center. Kathryn and her husband, Rupert Werner were two of the center’s donors who took part in the ceremony on Thursday.
Kathryn is also a cancer survivor. The $28.5 million Cancer Center, projected to open in September 2016, will be the area’s first free standing cancer center – and will offer surgical oncology offices and bays, radiation oncology space, treatment bays, and a conference center.
The 52,000-square-foot center will adjoin the Diagnostic Center on the northeast side of the WMC campus. The facility will include all outpatient oncology services, including physician offices, exam rooms, chemotherapy and radiation treatment areas, surgical follow-up, and clinical research and support services. The building will seek LEED certification. The design emphasizes natural light and outdoor views and includes a healing garden.
Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. is the general contractor. The architect is Perkins + Will.
