New cancer treatment and research center opens soon in Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WMAR) - It's being called the new hub of cancer treatment and research in Baltimore.

WMAR-2 News got a behind the scene look at the new Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building at the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Kimmel Cancer Center.

The $100 million facility has 10 floors, 38 exam rooms, 38 infusion rooms and six consultation rooms.

It will serve more than 200 patients per day with a team of specialists ready to care for patients.

"We really wanted a place that would be the front door to all of cancer care so you could arrive and have all the physicians available to you as a patient when you come to this building, as opposed to you making yourself available to them," said William Nelson, M.D., Ph.D., the director of Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Kimmel Cancer Center.

The Skip Viragh Foundation and Under Armour donated funds to the facility.

The Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building is expected to open June 8.
