Hospital invites public to cancer center open house

Valley View Hospital will celebrate the opening of its new cancer center this week with a series of open house events.The center is the result of a cooperative effort Valley View Hospital and the University of Colorado Cancer Center forged in 2001. The partnership between a top metropolitan research hospital and the local community hospital allows CU’s nationally respected oncology to see and treat patients close to home.As the cancer center outgrew its location across the street from Valley View Hospital, the Valley View Hospital Foundation spearheaded an effort to raise funds for a larger, more comfortable facility. The generosity of many local citizens has resulted in a warm, inviting space within the hospital, designed with an eye to the needs of cancer patients and their families.”We are extremely grateful to the support our community has offered in this effort,” said hospital representative Alice Sundeen. “Many people contributed toward the renovation of this facility, and we are proud of the comfort and care it will provide to people at a very vulnerable time in life.”All interested community members are welcome to an open house in the new center at 622 19th St., Suite 301, from 4-6 p.m. Friday. The facility is most easily accessible through the hospital’s upper entrance. By driving around the building to the rear entrance, valet parking is available just a few steps from the cancer center.Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served at the open house.
