Cancer center to open

Adventist Health will unveil its new cancer center in Chico on Tuesday (April 9).

The opening of the Cancer Care Center is significant, according to a news release, because cancer patients treated at Feather River Cancer Center in Paradise have had to travel up to 50 miles to receive care since the Camp Fire. An added benefit: UC Davis Health is a center partner and will provide access to its Comprehensive Cancer Center’s clinical trials and technology.

The facility is located at 95 Declaration Drive, Ste. 1. Full chemotherapy and other infusion services will be offered within the next few months. The center’s team will be anchored by providers who practiced in Paradise, led by medical oncologist and hematologist Dr. Sam Mazj.
