Seems like a no-brainer, especially if no local public money go towards it.

Here is something new and HUGE....

The hospital has submitted papers wanting to construct a new cancer hospital/cancer Center tower (both terms are used, but mean very different things). The proposed $181 million addition will add 130,000sqft. Plus 65 new acute beds to bring out total bed number for oncology up to 96. Outpatient facilities will be in the building as well. Assuming an OK comes from the state, bidding will start in December 2013; and occupancy in 2017.

In addition, the Reflector had an article today about ECU's plans for two new student centers...one on main campus and one near the medical school. They have to go through approvals prior to authorization for design/construction.

That sounds really great for the hospital. I would be VERY surprised if they didn't get approval for that. Wow. I would love to know where you get all this information because you are almost always posting about all sorts of new projects. You must have "connections". LOL.

The rumor around the hospital is that the similarly-priced heart center has so far been a money pit...

OTOH, Leo Jenkins is completely inadequate as far as modern cancer centers go, especially compared to the size of the medical center in general, and definitely needs to be updated.

Basically the State says our "service area" (Pitt/Greene/Hyde) need 65 new oncology beds. VMC was the only one to "apply". So assuming the redtape is fine, it should go through.

East Carolina and the hospital have taking more of a collaborative roll now, when it comes to oncology services. IIRC, in 2010(ish) they created a company that would consolidate both entities oncology stuff into one place.

There was something about ECU gets paid more for oncology services from the government. Or some other stuff.

But anyways, I agree LJCC hasn't really been overhauled in like 20 years.
