Ground has been broken on Moffitt Cancer Center's new McKinley Drive Outpatient facility, which will serve patients with a variety of cancers, while also creating a number of jobs for the Tampa Bay area. University Beat on WUSF TV has more on what the plan means for Moffitt, USF and the community.
Moffitt Cancer Center has broken ground on a new eight-story, 74 million dollar outpatient facility that officials say will improve both the physical and financial health of the Bay area. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has the story.
At the ground-breaking for the new McKinley Outpatient Facility, former Florida Rep. H. Lee Moffitt talks about the cancer center that he helped create and which now bears his name.
