Topeka (WIBW) - One of Topeka's newest health care facilities is turning heads.
The Cotton-O’Neil Cancer Center was recently showcased in Real Estate & Construction Review, a trade publication for the design and construction industry.
The 31,500-square-foot cancer center at 1414 S.W. 8th Ave. in Topeka, opened in January 2007. It consolidated all outpatient cancer services of Stormont-Vail and Cotton-O’Neil into one location. It houses an infusion center, radiation therapy, genetic counseling, and ancillary services such as social work, nutritional counseling and pastoral care.
The center originally offered consultation and treatment for adults, but in 2010 expanded to care for children with a diagnosis of cancer as well. It is one of only a handful of cancer treatment centers in Kansas to provide services to children.
In the real estate publication, the Cotton-O’Neil Cancer Center is one of five health care facilities featured. The publication includes projects from 2007 to 2010. The cancer center was also mentioned in the editor’s column, noting that the center “offers a single location that gives hope to each patient while meeting his or her physical, spiritual and emotional needs.”
The Cotton-O’Neil Cancer Center is accredited as a comprehensive cancer program by the Commission on Cancer and is a founding partner of the Midwest Cancer Alliance
