Meadowview Regional Medical Center Breaks Ground on Cancer Center Expansion

October 12, 2020

On October 8, Meadowview Regional Medical Center (MRMC), part of LifePoint Health, ceremoniously broke ground on an expansion of their cancer center. A small group of leaders from the hospital and community gathered to celebrate the first dig marking the beginning of construction for Meadowview Cancer Treatment Center. The facility is made possible by an investment of more than $7.5 million from LifePoint Health.

“We are excited to break ground on the expansion of Meadowview Regional Medical Center’s Cancer Treatment Center. We are thankful for LifePoint Health’s investment in the expansion of our center and commitment to our community,” said Joe Koch, Meadowview Regional Medical Center’s market president and chief executive officer.

Included in the expansion of the Meadowview Cancer Treatment Center is the high-precision Varian TrueBeam® radiotherapy system. As a fundamental piece of MRMC’s radiation oncology department, the Varian TrueBeam® radiotherapy system will deliver radiation treatments that will treat a wider array of cancer cases using a diverse range of radiation therapies. This new system will make it possible to deliver more comprehensive and effective care.

Meadowview Regional Medical Center is taking a step forward in their mission of Making Communities Healthier by offering the breadth and depth of treatment options needed to provide cancer patients in Mason County and the surrounding area with excellent high-quality care.

The architect for the Meadowview Cancer Treatment Center project will be Stengel-Hill. The general contractor will be Wehr Constructors, INC. The facility is expected to be completed and open to the public in Spring 2021.
