Carolinas HealthCare System's Levine Cancer Institute recently announced the opening of its research and administrative headquarters on the campus of CHS's Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. The development of the Institute and the building was made possible by a $20 million gift from the Leon Levine Foundation. The building features six stories with more than 171,000 square feet of space. It also houses nine cancer clinics, teleconference space, infusion therapy, palliative care and a phase I clinical trials unit which will support the administration of novel therapies.
"The opening of the building is symbolic of the entire Levine Cancer Institute network being fully functioning, for the advancement of patient care across the Carolinas," said Institute President Derek Raghavan, MD, PhD.
