The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Centers groundbreaking event
The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins held a groundbreaking event on Sept. 10, 2015 on a new $100 million, 184,000-square-foot cancer care building at one of the highest elevations in East Baltimore. Slated to open in late 2017, the building is named for Albert P. “Skip” Viragh Jr., a Maryland mutual fund investment leader, philanthropist and pancreatic cancer patient treated at Johns Hopkins who died of the disease in 2003 at age 62. The Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building will provide clinical services to patients with solid tumors, accounting for more than 180 current patients daily and 60 to 80 new patients each week. http://www.hopkinscancer.org
