Just weeks after cutting the ribbon on a new hospital in Mullica Hill, Inspira Health has done the same on a new cancer center.

The new center, located at the same 100-acre parcel near the intersection of routes 55 and 233 as the hospital, will enmesh medical, radiation and surgical oncologists, creating a new, comprehensive support network in South Jersey, Inspira said.

“We have been committed to reducing the burden of cancer on our community for decades,” John DiAngelo, CEO and president of Inspira Health, said. “With this state-of-the-art new cancer center, we bring together all the cancer experts, services and programs to provide the greater Gloucester County community with exceptional oncology services. From education, prevention, detection and research, to treatment, support and survivorship, our new leading-edge cancer center will reduce the burden of cancer on the communities we serve.”

The Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill Leading-Edge Cancer Center will have multiple settings for patients to receive infusion therapy, including traditional private treatment bays, extra quiet private treatment rooms and a large shared space.

“To ensure that we provide the best possible experience, we asked patients, “What would you like to see in our new cancer center?” DiAngelo said. “We then worked a number of their recommendations into the design. Our goal is to make the cancer journey as easy and comfortable as possible for our patients and their families.”

The center will also bring the latest treatment options, including clinical trials, to the campus, as well as consultations with surgical oncologists and cancer risk assessments.

“This new center will enable the multidisciplinary cancer team that Inspira has assembled to provide the highest level of care, right here in the community,” Erev Tubb, medical director of the cancer program in Mullica Hill, said. “Having all of the specialists in one location will allow for more formal and informal collaboration among our clinicians and provide our patients with the ability to come here and see more than one specialist on a single visit. This will reduce the number of trips needed for their care.”
