Remodeled, expanded Comprehensive Cancer Center opens

Newly remodeled, expanded clinic opens February 12

Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) has recently completed an expansion and remodel of its Comprehensive Cancer Center to better serve its patients and families.

We’re so happy that we now have an additional 4,238 square feet of space to create a more comfortable area for our patients and families.”

The newly expanded and remodeled location includes 5 more exam rooms as well as an additional counseling room and special procedure room in a cheerful, comfortable atmosphere bathed in warm lighting.
