The Geneva Plan Commission will take a first public look at the plans for a new cancer center at Delnor Hospital.
The site plan and development update is the only item on the agenda for the 7 p.m. Thursday (April 12) meeting at City Hall Chambers.
Cadence Health System, which owns Delnor and Central DuPage hospitals, has applied to the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board for a certificate of need to build what was described in December as a $20 million cancer treatment center.
The center would combine the oncology services throughout the Delnor campus and become a division of the hospital, according to media reports.
The certificate of need says 7,700 patients—the majority from Geneva, Batavia and St. Charles—would be treated at the new center after it is up and running for two years.
Plans for the new center can be viewed on the city of Geneva website. Here's a link to the PDF to the agenda packet.
Plans call for an addition to the existing Raymond G. Scott Cancer Care Center at 304 Randall Road, where Dr. Rodney Nelson practices.
Cadence Health is seeking permission to construct a 25,590-square-foot addition to the existing 9,084-square-foot cancer center. The addition would add space to the north and south of the existing building.
Geneva City Planner David DeGroot said the center would be a state-of-the-art treatment facility that would include 17 infusion bays, chemo-therapy treatment, medical offices and parking.
DeGroot said that, if the Plan Commission gives its approval, the plans could advance to the City Council Committee of the Whole in April and receive full City Council approval as soon as May.
