Medical Rounds

 Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building

The Future of Cancer Care

With the recent opening of the Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building, the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center has a new hub for cancer services and clinical research. “Cancer treatment now more than ever is being treated on an individual platform and in an outpatient setting. This building is designed to provide care and comfort to those patients,” says William Nelson, director of the Kimmel Cancer Cancer.

Located at 201 N. Broadway, the new $100 million cancer building serves patients with solid tumors, such as breast, lung, colon and bladder. Patients with non-solid tumor cancers (such as leukemia and lymphoma) will continue to receive their care at the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Building.

Watch a video to find out more about the Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building and Skip Viragh, whose gift and vision helped make it possible.
