Mercy General to open $11.6M oncology unit
Sacramento Business Journal

Mercy General Hospital will open a brand-new, $11.6 million oncology unit next week.

The 24-bed unit with all private rooms and upgraded technology is a big switch from 20 beds in mostly shared space in the south wing. Patients will move to the new unit on July 16.

The evolution stems from growth in Dignity Health’s regional cancer program and opening of a comprehensive outpatient cancer center on C Street in Sacramento four years ago. In an effort to be more competitive in the local cancer market, the health system has bolstered its doctor ranks and modernized facilities to be more accommodating to patients.
