Cancer/Geriatrics Center opened May 5

The U-M's new Cancer/Geriatric Center building opened its doors to patients yesterday. Included in the new $88 million facility is the Pediatric Infusion unit, where children receive chemotherapy in a setting that includes games, television, computers and toys. Max Wicha, director of the Comprehensive Cancer Center, noted that one of the most innovative and exciting components of the new center is the ability to keep research and treatment in the same building, bringing the most recent developments in research to the patient faster.
